    Scam email: Adobe-Reader-Pro

    AC_mde Level 1

      A variation on an old scam was received this morning by the company that I work for.  At first glance it looks genuine by its simplicity but has anyone ever heard of Adobe Reader Pro?  There is the official looking logo and even an address in California but simple checks can confirm the scam. I am told that clicking on the links will result in a bunch of malware being installed into your computer.  Below is the text from the message received this morning:
