Some things are the same no matter what operating system you run. Mac, Windows, or Linux user chances are you use Adobe Reader to read PDF (Portable Document Files) and Adobe Acrobat to create them. So it is that, no matter what you’re running on your PC, you need to update your copies of Reader and Acrobat.
After some delays, Adobe has finally updated these programs and to run safely you need to update as soon as possible. Windows, Mac and Linux users can all find the Reader updates at this site. Windows Acrobat users need to go to this page for their updates, while Mac users need to head to this site.
Why am I making such a fuss about this update? After all software gets patched every day. I’m raising a little Cain about it because major attacks on Google and Adobe are already happening because of these now fixed security holes.
These attacks aren’t coming from J. Random Hacker, they’re coming, according to Google, from the Chinese government.If you don’t want your computer to be part of state-sponsored espionage, you need to fix it now before you run across a malware-infected PDF.
