A security researcher has located a flaw in Adobe’s PDF file format.
The flaw affects users who use them on Windows XP operating systems but other operating systems may also be vulnerable to the flaw.
“Adobe Acrobat/Reader PDF documents can be used to compromise your Windows box. Completely!!! Invisibly and unwillingly!!! All it takes is to open a PDF document or stumble across a page which embeds one,” wrote Petko Petkov in a blog.
He already sent software developers a fix for the bug. This flaw affects all versions of PDF files.
