If you get this email do NOT use the links to down load the update of Adobe Reader.  It downloads malicious software to your computer.

The hackers must have found some new exploits. I'm getting all kinds of funky e-mails from friend's accounts that look like they've been hacked. I don't even do the unsubscribe option, this validates your e-mail and they then sell their validated list to others.

Delete is a wondrous key. Too bad we don't have that for other things in life. Like "delete that IFO" I didn't want that to happen.

I sent the warning to others on my email list and have already gotten back 3 replies that they had gotten the same email.

Thanks for the heads up, sent it to all on my list as well, most times I don't use my internet provider email addy, only family and just a "few" friends get it, thanks to yahoo and hotmail, that is what I put down most of the time for my email addy.

I'm like David H., I only updates when the program does it automatically.
