Adobe Reader X Preview - Release Expected Next Month

Today Adobe is announcing the new Acrobat X Family of Products which includes Adobe Reader X as well as Acrobat X Suite, Acrobat X Pro, and Acrobat X Standard. Reader X will be available for download next month and we want to give you a preview of the valuable new features you can expect.


Adobe's new Protected Mode, which will be included and enabled (by default) in Reader X, is one of the features everyone in security has been waiting to see.

This first release will sandbox all “write” calls on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2003. However, in future releases of Adobe Reader, Adobe plans on extending the sandbox to include read-only activities to protect against attackers seeking to read sensitive information on the user’s computer.
