There's a new version of Adobe Reader available, and recommended.

Seems hackers have found an exploit via older versions of the Reader and banner ads.

Anyway, there's a bunch of horror stories going around. Why not just get the newer version (it's free) and forget about it.

The other alternative is to ditch Adobe Reader all together and go with an alternative such as Foxit Software's Foxit Reader. It opens much more quickly than Adobe's Reader and isn't bloated like Adobe's Reader has become.

I've been using it for a few days now based on a number of recommendations and am loving it.

Yeah, and upgrade your favorite browser to the latest version too. If your firefox user, turn on the phishing filter. IE has the same thing, I think, but, it's IE.
