I have never liked the smug and often supercilious barstewards at Adobe Crapware Inc., but this one really takes the biscuit:
Steve Gottwals, a member of Adobe's security team, said it is in the process of reviewing the automatic launch feature in light of the new information.
"This is a good example of powerful functionality relied upon by some users that also carries potential risks when used incorrectly by others,"
he wrote. He went on to say: "We are currently researching the best approach for this functionality in Adobe Reader and Acrobat," and it may introduce changes in a future update.
They actually have a "security team" huh..............I wonder who the other member is then?............Gottwals' dog no doubt
"Autorun vulnerabilities"?..........ring a bell?
Ack Phtt! as Bill the Cat would say...................

If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
