Red Hat: Updated acroread packages fix multiple security issues

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document Format (PDF). Multiple input validation flaws were discovered in the JBIG2 compressed images decoder used by Adobe Reader. A malicious PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
