Re: NBC Website Hacked

said by AVD:

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.
