Virus’s are on the rise – This time in PDFs!

We are getting 2-3 calls per week from clients that have caught a virus.  Some of them are VERY nasty (1-2 hours to eradicate the virus).  Make sure you are running a comprehensive internet security program that include anti-virus, spyware and rootkit protection (we currently find that VIPER Premium from Sunbelt is the better mousetrap these days).  Additionally there is a rash of virus’s that are sprung from pdf documents.  In order to be protected from them, you must be running Adobe Reader 9.3 or higher.  If you can install any older copies of Adobe Reader or call me to discuss your situation further.
