Security bulletin

This release provides mitigations for vulnerabilities described in the security bulletin at http://www.adobe.com/go/apsb12-16.



Like Reader 10.1 and later, Acrobat 10.1.4 installs ARMsvc.exe as part of the Updater on Windows 7, Vista, and Server 2008, Acrobat 10.1.4. The new service enables silent and automatic updates on machines where a user has configured the application for automatic updates. The service eliminates information dialogs prior to updates. In enterprise settings, IT can use DISABLE_ARM_SERVICE_INSTALL=1 to prevent the installation of the ARM service.

Adobe online services

  • UI elements associated with Adobe online services integrated with the product are more visible in the Tools pane.
  • Reader’s Export PDF service now supports conversion to .doc and .rtf.


Adobe Reader supports Mutual Authentication when LiveCycle Rights Management server has Mutual Authentication enabled. Mutual Authentication is also known as two-way SSL. By default, in SSL only server’s certificate is validated. In the case of mutual authentication, the client also needs to authenticate via PKI for any communication with the server.

Prior to this release, Adobe Reader supports authentication to LC server via application layer authentication mechanisms like password, Kerberos and public key certificates. SSL is currently employed purely for LiveCycle server authentication/verification. SSL supports authentication of the client via client supplied certificates at the network layer. The feature uses this network layer information to authenticate Adobe Reader to the ALCRM server.


The online help system is now accessible when the user is behind an authenticating proxy. Configuration involves setting the following preferences:


32-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\10.0\FeatureState]
64-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\10.0\FeatureState]


32-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\FeatureState]
64-bit: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Acrobat Reader \10.0\FeatureState]
