Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Security flaw in Acrobat

Thanks to Ernest Svenson for bringing to my attention a security flaw in Acrobat. Acrobat and Acrobat Reader (all versions since version 7) are vulnerable to a Javascript exploit that can crash Acrobat.

Adobe is planning to release updates to Adobe Reader and Acrobat to resolve the security issue. It expects to update Adobe Reader 9 and Acrobat 9 by March 11th, 2009. Updates for prior versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat will follow soon after.

If you're worried about this exploit right now you should turn off Javascript support in the preferences settings.
