Use an open source PDF reader, most of which always run with the
document untrusted in safe mode and don't implement some of the more
fun stuff in a PDF.
Agreed . Well Adobe Reader was the one i got . If u know another one
i would be happy to give it a shot . Am not addicted to Adobe Reader
or anything . So i would be gratefull and willing to try another program
that would be safer than Acrobat Reader . Am not a security maniac but
if there is something simple that i could do then i would certainly give it
a try .
But yes its always useful to remember that many kinds of document can
do strange things to themselves if nothing else - contracts that
change wording according to the date for example yet are the same
digitally signed document.
To be honest am not sure what are u talking about ? I was always under the
impression that pdf is just another form of document , ok with formating
pictures embedded , or whatever else . I didn´t knew that it actually
code that could be executed and mess things up .
