I have been trained to be suspicious concerning notifications of upgrades to exisiting software. I am receiving a pop-up notice that Adobe Reader 9.3.4 is available. Yet, when I go to www.adobe.com, the latest version of Adobe Reder listed is 9.3.3. How can I tell that the dowload site in the update notification is legitimate and not a spoof inducing me to download malware? Thanks.
Adobe released update 9.3.4 for Reader on August 19,2010
For your reference:
These updates are avaialable @
which you can apply over Reader 9.3.3.
Regarding checking the validity of update and to see what this update is, you will have to click on the system tray icon whose pop up says "Update is ready to install" and it should bring up a "Adobe Reader Updater" dialog with a "details" link. Click on the "details" link, which should take you to some URL and the page will have information regarding the update.
