After resolving my Office issues, I have some browser issues which been present for a good long while.:

IE8 / Mozilla 3.6.3 / Adobe reader 9.x3.2

Secunia says 'no known solutions. These have always been there, but seeing as I'm tracking this stuff down in the company of experts, I thought I'd ask the question.

IE8...ver SA24314

Firefox 3.6.3....ver SA39925

Adobe Reader 9.3.2 ....ver SA40034

Secunia says no known solutions. Adobe reader error is common under both browsers.

The IE8 & Firefox are marked as less critical.

I only use IE8 and am not really concerned about the low level bug. If I was running Firefox I would feel the same.

Adobe Reader.

This may help U decide what to do:

By clicking on the blue numbered SA's, for each listing, under secure browsing, will give the full Advisory.

IE and Ff are (relatively) low level threats, that have been around for a while - normal secure browsing practices are advised.

IE wont be rectified before IE9, but Mozilla should bring out a patch at some point.

Re. Adobe Reader - this is different, as it is a vulnerability that is reported as being actively exploited.

There is a workaround, temporary fix advised, as a patch for this isn't expected before 29 Jun.

I suggest you type Adobe Reader into the search box at top of forum page, and check out the most recent replies to see how to affect this workaround.

If you are keeping Adobe Reader , there is plenty of information concerning the vulnerability and the workaround available prior to a patch being released (supposedly for the end of this month) in this thread :-

Take care


It always seems impossible until its done.
