Using an Adobe Exploit in a Email Attack

This attack takes advantage of a vulnerability in Adobe Reader and Acrobat. The official release is here. Adobe has been informed of this vulnerability for well over a month now and has issued a statement that it will release a fix on January 14th. It is a scary thought that this exploit will be live and in the wild for almost 2 months before Adobe decides to fix it.  I am making this post in order to make people aware of how such a attack can take place and how easy it is to implement.
