The vulnerability allows attackers to bypass the protected Office view and open the file in edit mode instead of in protected mode.

However, attackers can trigger memory errors when opening PDFs and thus load malicious code onto the systems, which can completely compromise a computer. Adobe recommends carrying out an update immediately.
