Reports of the Adobe Acrobat zero day exploit should not be shrugged off.

However, mitigating this exploit may be a bit bewildering due to lack of information.

Our friend John LaCour has posted a quick fix. However, this involves disabling Javascript in Acrobat, which for some enterprises is unacceptable.
Not a good situation. If you can’t disable Javascript in PDFs, then your next best answer relying on your endpoint solution and begging your users to be careful with PDFs from unknown parties.

Prayer is also a good thing to throw into the mix. Can’t hurt.

PS: I should mention that you can always get a snort rule for it.
