Encouraging Everyone to Use Protection....

If you use Adobe Acrobat programs, take a quick moment to fiddle with the settings and turn javascripts off. there seems to be a new virus going around..... ok, maybe its not a virus; it is being called an "exploit" and a "vulnerability," and i am not in a good position to know the differences or distinctions of any of them. What I do know is that pdf formated documents play a hugh role in the residential real estate process, and none of us really want (or can afford) to have to deal with this sort of thing.

details here:

ComputerWorld

ZD Net

Shadowserver

Adobe's own "Product Security Incident Response Team"

Seems easy enough to protect yourself from this one - at least until someone gets around to fixing the problem.
