Due to lack of information from Adobe, it is unclear whether the PDF is actually dangerous, or if the response is a false-positive. As of July 15, 2016, Adobe continues to distribute the flawed PDF on their own web site. Nevertheless, these patches replace the suspect file with an updated PDF that does not trigger anti-virus response.
