Don't Open that PDF Yet!!

dont open pdf

 

I just received a security alert today from Kim Komando. 

Kim Komando is an all things digital expert...computers, cell phones, notebooks, tablets, cameras  -  you name it, she can help you with it.  She is The Digital Goddess.  Check her out at Komando.com

Her alert today was to inform her subscribers that hackers have hacked into Adobe Reader, and can bypass the security controls built into Adobe Reader so that malicious viruses can filter through Adobe when you open a PDF.

In her article she gave several tips, the number one being NEVER open a PDF from someone you don't know, and if it is from someone you know, make sure they really sent it.

For more tips on saving yourself from PDF problems, check out Kim's website. 

Adobe is working on a fix, but until then careful out there on your computer.
