Seems a bit early in the year to give any company this dishonorable distinction, but experts are saying that the Adobe bug found last week may be the worst but of the year.

InformationWeek is reporting that the Adobe bug found last week is much worse than was originally thought. A bug in Adobe Reader could enable hackers to make PDFs operate as carriers for malicious Java code. Here's the link: Information Week

Adobe says its working on a patch to release next week.

Wow, you would think companies such as Adobe, hugely responsible for numerous things that can be exploited have the sense to test them throughly, especially for simple things like javascript exploitations.

Wow, I've not heard of this one. Looks like it's been more than a week, so does anyone have any news on this? Quite a few people use Adobe Reader since it's free and bundled with everything, so this is a pretty serious issue I hope they have/can quickly fix.

I use FoxItReader
myself for all my PDF needs as it's a very efficient, lightweight program without the bugs that also allows simple editing. They also offer a full featured PDF editer program as well for advanced functions.
