You may have read Bojan's excellent diary earlier this month where he looks at a couple of new PDF exploits with zero AV coverage. The low coverage was likely to be caused by a funky method of confusing the AV engine when its parsing the Javascript contained within the PDF.

Well,  Didier Steven's has written an analysis of those files and it an excellent read. Go take a look at his blog entry on Shoulder Surfing a Malicious PDF Author

Apple have released iLIfe support version 8.3.1 which addresses three security issues with the ImageIO component.

These addresses issues in Mac OSX releases 10.4.9 through 10.4.11 and can be found on the Apple support site.

The following CVE's are covered:

CVE-2008-2327 : Viewing a maliciously crafted TIFF image may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

CVE-2008-2332 : Viewing a maliciously crafted TIFF image may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

CVE-2008-3608 : Viewing a large maliciously crafted JPEG image may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

Apple indicate that if your on Leopard version 10.5.5 this is already fixed, so it would appear that if your not at 10.5.5 you should upgrade for these issues too.
