Hello George Johnson
I do so appreciate your assistance…
Although I have used in business and own computers since the 1970’s [built one myself from a kit in 79], I’ve not had to concern myself with programming since, DOS, Lotus/IBM/Apple Basic and COBAL --- especially after XP release I gave up even trying to figure what each does. I did not mean to offend as to which specific JAVA version and/or product is the problem, since I personally have no CLUE – and today totally depend upon goodwill of smart guys like you.
Since my PDF database Archives [and back-ups] is many terabytes – it is impossible to “import” each PDF into Acrobat and run PDF Optimizer (removing Adobe known user placed codes and data) – as I am doing now – much less trying to figure out what else I should check for within the PDF file or the ever increasing updates, changes, versions of plugging the hole in the dikes…..
So George, back to my question, Has Abode Acrobat issued stand alone "security" application package to CLEAN the widely "known" Malicious code or attack internet sites from PDF files? [You know 28% DHLS & DOD is talking about.] I was informed that Security Software doesn't perform this specific function inside PDF files. Does Adobe have a similar Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool? What is Adobe's solution?
Thank you so very much for your knowledge, help, and interest.
