The Security Advisory (APSA11-04) regarding CVE-2011-2462 has been updated to reflect the expected release date of Friday December 16, 2011 for the Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.x for Windows updates to resolve this issue.
As stated before, because Adobe Reader X Protected Mode and Adobe Acrobat X Protected View would prevent an exploit of this kind from executing, we are currently planning to address this issue in Adobe Reader X and Acrobat X for Windows with the next quarterly security update for Adobe Reader and Acrobat, currently scheduled for January 10, 2012. We are planning to address this issue in Adobe Reader and Acrobat X and earlier versions for Macintosh as part of the next quarterly update scheduled for January 10, 2012. An update to address this issue in Adobe Reader 9.x for UNIX is planned for January 10, 2012. For further context on this schedule, please see the corresponding ASSET blog post.
