PSA: Don't open PDF files if you aren't absolutely certain of their origin...

For people who use any version of Adobe acrobat reader. I don't usually forward this stuff, but I figure that given how ubiquitous PDFs have become as part of my web experience, and it's an exploit that Adobe is trying to fix, hasn't yet but is pointing out people are already taking advantage of the weakness "in the wild"... From InfoWorld:

"You have the choice of small loss in functionality and a crash versus your systems being compromised and all your data being stolen," the organization wrote. "It should be an easy choice."
Well, yeah.
