New MAX Session Added on Sandboxing; Adobe Reader Security

For anyone interested in Adobe Reader security, this is the newly added MAX session, “Sandboxing Adobe Reader Protected Mode” is for you.

I’ll be joined by Suchit Mishra, Acrobat lead security researcher, as we help separate fact from fiction in the buzz around Adobe Reader security. We’ll outline the motivation behind Protected Mode and give a demonstration of Adobe Reader running in the sandbox. We’ll discuss how Reader Protected Mode works and how it can protect end users from Internet attacks via malicious PDF files.

To learn more or register for this limited seat MAX session, check out the details here.

Beware Phishy Emails

It has come to Adobe’s attention that email messages purporting to offer a download of a new version of Adobe Reader have been sent by entities claiming to be Adobe. Many of these emails are signed as “Adobe Acrobat Reader Support” (or similar), and in some instances require recipients to register and/or provide personal information. Please be aware that these emails have not been sent by Adobe or on Adobe’s behalf. The Adobe Reader is free software available for download directly from the Adobe Reader download page on the Adobe Web site at; it is not available in any other manner via download, including via email. Customers receiving one of these emails should delete the email immediately without clicking on any of the links.
