While Adobe Reader users were urged to upgrade their software in one of our previous posts, Foxit Reader, another free pdf viewer, needs to be actively upgraded as well.
Users should be aware that the same distributors of Adobe Reader attacks are also attacking Foxit Reader, and retrieving the same downloader components via exploitation.
Any new exploitation data would look like this…
Adobe Reader v9 less than 1%
Foxit Reader v2 less than 1%
Adobe Reader v8 48%
Adobe Reader v7 50%
The newest Foxit Reader upgrades can be found here.
