I'm thinking specifically of the PDF Mac vulnerability.  My boss and I would
like to test his mac to see if it's succeptable in its current, hardened
state.  How can I get this code/file?

See if the open source Metasploit framework has an exploit for the CVE
that corresponds to that vulnerability.   CVE-2010-1836 is the most
recent outright PDF vulnerability for mac I've been able to find.
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-0611  however
refers to an Adobe Reader vulnerability that affects OSX, but the
issue is with SWF file parsing. 

On the one that most recently made news, though,
http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/trojan-dropper_osx_revir_a.shtml  it's
not clear to me if there's an associated pdf vulnerability, or if code
execution is achieved some other way, and that the dropper program opens a
pdf as a distraction.   Its relation to
CVE-2011-0611 I don't know either.  

Perhaps someone else on the list is aware of more details.
