Re: Zero-day attack reportedly pierces key Adobe Reader defense

quote:
... Reader's security sandbox has gone a long way in reducing the real-world exploits hitting the document viewer.
Maybe computer users ought to consider going the 'rest of the way' to eliminate such Reader exploits by replacing their use of Adobe Reader with one of the several alternative, top-notch readers that are just that: "readers". Some time ago, I did this and haven't looked back since.

Thanks for this. Sick of Adobe's bloatware and just switched to Foxit.

If you use Foxit's .exe installer, beware of "goodies" (toolbars or whatever).
The .msi version does not have that.
