Tuesday, November 18, 2008

By Richard L. DeVries

Affected Software: Adobe Reader, Acrobat Standard, and Acrobat Professional versions 8.1.2 and earlier. Windows and Mac platforms.
Target Audience: Faculty & staff computers. Smart Classrooms.

Adobe has released a security update to version 8.1.3 for Adobe Reader, Acrobat Standard, and Acrobat Professional for both the Windows and Mac platforms. CIT will begin deploying this update to campus workstations beginning Nov. 18.

Adobe Reader is included on all campus workstations and will need to be updated. If possible, CIT will deploy the update “silently” with no interaction with the user.

Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Professional is installed as needed on select campus workstations. These systems will need to be updated as well, however it may not be possible to deploy a “silent” update to these workstations. The user may be prompted to install the update and if necessary reboot the computer.

This page will be updated with more details about this deployment as more information is known.
