Stop using Adobe Acrobat Reader - The Inquirer

"INSECURITY OUTFIT F-Secure has warned people to stop using Adobe's Acrobat Reader and switch to using an alternative PDF reader until the company sorts out its security.

Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer of F-Secure, told a briefing of journos that nearly half of hacker attacks this year exploited holes in Acrobat Reader, while six vulnerabilities have been discovered that target the program.

He said that users would be better off with an open sauce flavour of PDF reader."

I have been using Foxit reader for years, It's free.
