The vulnerability affects Adobe Reader 8.1 and earlier, Adobe Reader 7.0.9 and earlier, Adobe Acrobat Professional, 3D and Standard 8.1 and earlier, Adobe Acrobat Professional, Standard, 3D and Elements 7.0.9 and earlier.

A vulnerability exposed in January stems from Adobe Reader's "Open Parameters" feature that lets developers pass parameters when opening a PDF file. Adobe also spent considerable time and effort getting its software to interoperate with Windows Vista.
