New Adobe zero-day hole already exploited, Trojan virus in the wild
Remember that new zero-day exploit which they announced yesterday? Well, if yesterday was day zero it's now day one, and that exploit is being targeted by the bad guys. Trend Micro reports that a trojan is spreading which drops a downloader -- which then drops another downloader. From there, it's a one-way ticket on the express bus to Malware City.
Trend's Smart Protection network has you covered, they say, which is a good thing. There's no word from Adobe yet as to when this hole is going to be closed, so security vendors will need to step up.
There is, of course, a DIY solution you can leverage right now: use a different freakin' PDF reader (Sumatra, Foxit, PDF X-change). Graphics and publishing people who have to use Adobe Acrobat and Reader? Tread lightly. Don't open any PDFs you don't have complete faith in. Also, you have my deepest sympathy.
