Users Remain Vulnerable to Flash Exploits After Upgrading Flash Player

Quote:
A large number of users, who regularly upgrade their Flash Player installations, remain exposed to Flash-based attacks, because the Flash plug-in bundled in Adobe Reader is not updated at the same time.
Yet another reason to use an alternative to Adobe Reader.

Just in case there may be someone out there who hasn't heard of it, Foxit Reader is a free alternative to Adobe. Been using it for a couple of years and haven't found any PDF files it couldn't read.

I'm using Nitro PDF Reader, still in beta at the minute but still works well.
