security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability

This update fixes multiple security flaws in Adobe Reader. These flaws are

running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.
