IT managers should watch PDF and Adobe Reader’s software closely in 2010

9 Jan 2010 | | 2 Comments

ComputerWeekly.com report that security firm Qualys believe that the frequency and severity of Adobe Reader’s software make it a top priority for IT security managers.

According to Sans Internet Storm Center analyst Bojan Zdrnja, there is evidence of a high level of skill in recently analysed Adobe Reader exploit code. “If we are to judge the new year by the sophistication the attackers have started using, it does not look too good,” he wrote in a blog post.

Bojan also says that the large cross-platform base of users — many of whom are business based, makes it an attractive target for hackers.
