This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.
Adobe Acrobat, Reader, and Flash Player are prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability.
An attacker can exploit this issue by supplying a malicious Flash ('.swf') file or by embedding a malicious Flash application in a PDF file. Successful exploits may allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Failed attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
