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.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
