A couple of weeks ago, we announce a new critical vulnerability in Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.1.2 that allows remote code execution. Adobe released an update for it, Security Update 1. The update process was confusing for lot of people, and after completing it,  it was not clear how to check if the update had been properly installed, as it still says version 8.1.2  almost everywhere.

There are different ways to check it is installed. Thanks Erick (from Adobe). Please, scroll to the bottom of the Release Notes for instructions on Windows and Mac:
