    Legit site?

      (Sorry about the double post - I posted in Acrobat by error)

       

      I received an email about AcrobatX with website given as

      [url deleted by host]

       

      linking to

       

       

       

      [url deleted by host]

       

      and just wondered that it did not look right.

          Adobe Reader is the official name of a free program from Adobe, whose official site is here:

           

          http://www.adobe.com/

           

          I would seriously question any site offering downloads of a free program...

            Why is it, I ask myself, that Adobe should attract such attention to itself merely for wishing to make reasonably secure files, reasonably available across multiple platforms, languages, ... and in a way that make revisions or alterations obvious?

             

            To Hosts: thank you for deleting the URLs.  Without them the original post might have been meaningless but with them there were additional issues.

             

            At least two breaches were obvious: using a registered trademark name and using the name of a registered company.

             

            I'll revise up the coding to correct answer.
