This ZDNet comment sums up this situation

I think it is just easier to call Java and Flash malware kits, or malware enablers. Then everybody knows where they stand :-D

This is becoming a joke.
Foxit Reader is much smaller and does the job too. Whether it is inherently safer, i do not know.

I usually surf with JavaScript disabled and only turn it on when really necessary (some videos need it but again the videos on youtube, e.g., run without it. All it needs is a click on the video. JavaScript remains disabled. So it is possible without Javascript. Sometimes you really wonder what's going on).
