Adobe issued patches for a five-month old JavaScript vulnerability in Reader, Acrobat 8.1.2, and six critical patches were released for Flash Player 9.

JavaScript vulnerabilities in older versions of Acrobat and Reader could allow remote code execution if not properly patched.

Adobe has a page that tells users which version of Flash they're using, to simplify the security update process.
