Adobe Reader and Acrobat updates are still on schedule for 29 June, according to the software supplier.

The updates will address critical security issues in the products, reported by Adobe on 4 June.

The firm rushed out a fix for the zero-day vulnerabilities in its stand-alone Flash Player software for Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix on 11 June.

The updates for Adobe Reader 9.3.2 and 8.2.2 and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 and 8.2.2 will fix the Flash Player and other vulnerabilities.

The 29 June updates represent an accelerated release of the next quarterly security update originally scheduled for 13 July, 2010.

As a result of this accelerated schedule, Adobe will not release additional updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat on 13 July, the firm said.

Adobe said it will continue to provide updates on the upcoming release via the Security Advisory section of the Adobe web site as well as the Adobe PSIRT blog.
