Adobe has announced that a patch to Acrobat and Reader, scheduled for release on Tuesday, September 9, will not be released until the week of September 15.
The update will include new versions of Reader and Acrobat for Windows and Mac. The new versions will address one or more critical vulnerabilities in the software, the exact nature of which remain unspecified for now.
The affected versions are Reader and Acrobat X 10.1.11 and earlier and Reader and Acrobat XI 11.0.08.
The company states, in an entry to the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) Blog, that the "...delay was necessary to address issues identified during routine regression testing." Delays like this are unusual, but not unheard of.
The fact that advance notification of the update was given by Adobe last week was itself unusual. Adobe usually provides no meaningful warning of security updates.
