Update 2 will fix a problem that causes Acrobat to crash when exporting multiple pages to Level-1 EPS. More importantly, it patches security vulnerabilities due to buffer overrun attacks. This problem could allow a malicious user to crash a program or run unauthorised code. If a malicious user were to create a specially devised PDF file and it was then viewed in Acrobat reader, the file could crash the program or run an arbitrary code on the computer. Update 2 is a cumulative release – you do not need to install Update 1 first.
