Adobe released security updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat XI (11.0.0) and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.  Also released were security updates for Adobe Reader 9.5.1 and earlier 9.x versions for Linux.

These updates address critical vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
