Adobe has released updates for Acrobat and Acrobat Reader versions to address "critical vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system".
According to Adobe, there are three CVE's fixed in these updates. CVE-2016-1007 and CVE-2016-1009 refer to memory corruption issues that could permit code execution. CVE-2016-1008 refers to a resource directory search path issue that could also lead to code execution.
Both of these sound serious enough to warrant updating as soon as reasonable.
