16 Questions You MUST Ask Before Hiring Any IT Company
A lot of people have a complicated relationship with Adobe Acrobat reader.
On the one hand, it’s an undeniably useful piece of software and one of the most widely installed and used on the planet.
There’s simply a no better and more convenient way to view PDFs, no matter what kind of device you’re using.
On the other hand, the Acrobat Reader is notoriously riddled with bugs and security flaws, and Adobe is forever playing defense. They’re gamely trying to patch each new issue as it is discovered. Recently, the company released a major patch that addresses a total of fourteen different security flaws, with ten of the fourteen being rated as either critical or important.
Needless to say, this is a big, important patch. Even if you don’t normally make Acrobat Reader updates a priority, this should be an exception to that rule. The faster you get all copies of the software updated on your network, the safer and more secure your system will be.
Hopefully, the day will come when Adobe can stop playing defense and the pace of newly discovered security issues will begin to slow to a trickle. Until that happens though, kudos to Adobe for their fast action and continued efforts to plug the security holes in their widely used Reader software.
