Adobe Reader X – 10.1 Update Fixes Sym Link Bugs

Adobe Reader X aims to solve many of the serious security flaws found in older versions of Reader by implementing ‘Protected Mode‘, a type of sandboxing. This is a serious attempt by Adobe to stop malware authors exploiting their software.

The first version of Abobe Reader 10 recreated an old bug, evident in the 9 release, where it failed to load on systems with remote or roaming profiles.

There is a patch pushed through the new update mechanism to version 10.0.1 which Adobe claim contains ‘Numerous security fixes as well as improvements to Protected Mode..’ However, the cause of the fault is now acknowledged in the Protected Mode Troubleshooting guide –

Launching Reader 10.0  via a user profile that has been moved to a different drive using a symbolic link; that is, profiles that have been copied from one drive to another cannot use Reader with Protected Mode enabled.

This is now resolved in a new 10.1 update, available from filehippo.com or Adobe directly.
