    Is it not more that Adobe Reader could harm your computer?
    And should be replaced by one of the less bloated readers like Sumatra PDF Viewer, Foxit Reader, PDF Viewer, and so on. Ones that don't require an update seemingly every week.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing much new in the article (although it's good to remind people of such risks).

    I am not sure that Adobe Reader is not more scrutinized than the other readers, to be honest. I use a different one, but still can't really see how things at Adobe can be so much worse, security wise...
