Out of band(?) Adobe Reader Security Update Released

Adobe has released Adobe Reader versions 9.3.1 and 8.2.1 to address new security vulnerabilities.

Whatever happened to Adobe’s plan to have their Patch Tuesday be on Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday but just once per quarter? Adobe Reader 9.3.0 and 8.2.0 were released on 12 Jan 2010 which was right on time, but what about 16 Feb 2010? That isn’t one quarter away from 12 Jan and it wasn’t on Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday.

At any rate, as described here this was to be expected for the next year or two.
