As a followup to last weeks security update Acrobat 9 Adobe has just released the updates for Adobe Acrobat 8 and Acrobat 7 to fix critical vulnerabilities. These updates resolve the issue from Security Advisory APSA09-01 and Security Bulletin APSB09-03.

Users who have previously updated to Adobe Reader 9.1 and Acrobat 9.1 for Windows and Macintosh need not take any action. Adobe now plans to make available Adobe Reader 9.1 and Adobe Reader 8.1.4 for Unix by March 24th.
