New Blog: Adobe Insecure / Unpatched Version From Official Site

There has recently existed some confusion amongst the users of the
Secunia PSI as they puzzled as to why the latest downloaded Adobe
Reader version from Adobe.com is reported as insecure by Secunia PSI.
We have looked into this and are happy to learn that the Secunia PSI is
correct, but surprised to discover that Adobe ships insecure software to
their users!
