Adobe Reader Setting to Change

So you need to know what the criminal attackers are exploiting so you can defend against it. Adobe Reader/Acrobat and Adobe Flash are at the top of the list. Earlier I wrote about turning off Javascript in Adobe Reader in this post. I come to you with another setting to change. Pull up your Adobe Reader and then go to Edit>Preferences:

Find the category Trust Manager and highlight it, then uncheck the box seen below in this image.

Trying to stay secure is always a moving target. Setting these options as I have mentioned will help protect against current attacks going on now in the wild.

Stay safe and have a great weekend.
