I already came across the info on Tuesday via this Adobe page (but was also informed from German blog reader and AdminKirsty on Twitter – thanks). Adobe released Security Bulletin APSB18-40, dated November 13, 2018 and rate this update with priority 1 (low). This vulnerability affects the Adobe Acrobat and Reader versions for Windows and macOS from the following table. 

Product Track Affected Versions Platform Priority rating

Ideally, the products should be updated to the corrected versions by an auto-update. Otherwise, an update search can be triggered in the product (see). 

BTW: Adobe has also released an update for Adobe Photoshop CC (see).
