I’ve Been Acknowledged!

Acrobat and Reader 9, X, and XI were updated recently and it looks like the security vulnerability that I identified has been fixed; check out the Acknowledgements section of the Security Bulletin, APSB13-02. It didn’t hurt your machine but the vulnerability would allow a PDF to invisibly communicate with a server and track your use of the PDF file including when the file was opened, what pages were viewed, and if the file was printed.

I’m glad I could do my part to keep viewing PDF files safer.
