The latest Adobe Reader version is 9.3.3 released on June 29. We don't know if you already had 9.3.3, and if you did, what you just downloaded and installed.
I had ver 9.3.3!
I downloaded the update and I notice the ver still says 9.3.3.!
Did anyone else get this pup-up update?
As I said, it was 9.3.3, but I already had 9.3.3 on my computer.
Was this a "patch" or a "trojan?"
Can someone please help?
It is very difficult to say what you saw. The Adobe Updater should not prompt you to install any updates that you already have. (And no, there was no patch to update 9.3.3)
It is possible that it was a fake. Check your system for potential malware.
I just received this post from another forum:
"You're probably ok. There was a recent security update for ver. 9.3.3 so that was likely it."
What happens when you open Reader and click on Help>Check for updates?Latest update available for Reader is 9.3.3 and when you now click
on Help>Check for updates,it should say 'No updates available'.Also,do you have Acrobat on your system?Can you please give me the link to
forum post which told you about this security update for 9.3.3 because I believe there was no such update.
Everything I am reading says the security update for 9.3.3 has not been issued yet. Supposed to be sometime this week
I do the "check for updates" now and it says I have the current version.
Could it possibly be new 'languages' that was downloaded?
Regarding your :"Can you please give me the link to forum post which told you about this security update for 9.3.3 because I believe there was no such update"
Maybe you will never know what happened, but stay tuned for the next security update later this week.
I read your exchange in the techguy forum, where somebody recommended "Foxit reader". Yes, this software is free. It also installs spyware (Ask toolbar) on your system for free.
And foxit reader recently had a vulnerability also - Adobe is getting better about faster updates
And the latest -
Adobe is planning to release critical updates on August 19, 2010 for Adobe Reader 9.3.3 for Windows, Macintosh and Unix as well as the Adobe Acrobat 9.3.3 for Windows and Macintosh and an update for Adobe Reader 8.2.3 and Acrobat 8.2.3 for Windows and Macintosh covered in security bulletin APSB10-17. An update for Adobe Flash Player published in security bulletin APSB10-16 will be released as well.UPDATE
