Adobe Fixes Security Flaw:

From Findlaw -
In response to the discovery of a security flaw in Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader, Adobe has released updates to older versions of the popular PDF viewing and editing software...

Adobe recommends that all users of the Acrobat and Acrobat Reader software upgrade to version 8, which does not contain the XSS vulnerability. For users who aren't able to upgrade, however, the new updates to Acrobat and Acrobat Reader 6 and 7 will plug the security hole. Instructions for downloading the updates are available here.
