Now FF has PDF built in...so it begins....

Which is why, in about:config, I've set pdfjs.disabled to true in addition to disabling any and all PDF plugins in the Adds-ons Manager.

is it a vulnerability in the PDF protocal or the adobe (or foxit) renderer?

No idea but if you don't allow PDF's to be automatically displayed then no vulnerability can be exploited

I manually (right-click, Save As...) files I want (including PDF's). If I noticed a PDF I hadn't downloaded I wouldn't try and open it even if it is called "free prize" or similar. I'm not that naive.
