Adobe is implementing Windows sandboxing, similar to that in Google Chrome
and Office 2010, in the next major version of Reader. Such sandboxes don’t
eliminate vulnerabilities or exploits, but they run exploit code in a
crippled environment in which it can’t accomplish anything it might want.
Well, almost nothing.
Personally, I think this will go a long way towards pushing attacks away
from PDF, although it will depend on how quickly they can push their users
onto the new version.
