        Current reports indicate that successful exploitation of this
        vulnerability can result in the execution of arbitrary code. [1]
        PDF files and Flash movies are some of the vectors being used to
        exploit this vulnerability. In the meantime users can disable the
        Flash plugin and not open PDF files from untrusted sources. As
        exploit code has been seen in legitimate websites, users should 
        also consider disabling Flash and PDF extensions in their web
