Adobe Acrobat Reader - another bug, another reason to switch to Foxit Reader

Adobe Acrobat Yet Again Under Attack by Zero-Day Bug | Maximum PC

If it seems like Adobe's Acrobat Reader is constantly under attack, well, that's because there's some truth to it. The latest threat comes in the form of another zero-day bug being exploited in targeted attacks, Adobe said.

Not a whole lot of information has been made available on the newest threat, though according to an advisory from VUPEN Security, the vulnerability in question is an unspecified memory corruption error that occurs when users open a specially crafted PDF file. VUPEN says the bug can be exploited remotely.

Want a less-bloated, faster, less-buggy PDF reader that has proven itself over the years?
Try Foxit Reader
