Windows 7: Adobe Acrobat Reader Upgrade

Adobe Acrobat Reader Upgrade

I checked my email a few minutes ago and found this in my Spam folder.
I wanted show this to say that I hope people don't just click links just because the source appears to be from a legitimate source.

Notice the mis-spelling for the email link (adobesysteRms) and as far as I know, companies such as Adobe don't contact end-users directly in an email for an update/upgrade that would normally be given notification from the application itself...

Always examine who emails are from and pay attention to the links the message wants you to click.

And, I typed the link in a browser and went to the site... There is a disclaimer at the bottom of the page that even states that the website has no affiliation with the owner of the software!
