For almost the past year, I have seen increasing infections via malicious PDF documents. For almost as long, I have made it a point to disable my browser's ability to automatically open a PDF right in the browser.
For the past couple of weeks, during malware cleanup jobs, I have noticed that some of my customers also have the PDF AddOn disabled in their Internet Explorer browser. This was not by my doing, nor did the customer have an idea how things got this way.
1) something that Adobe is starting to do during Adobe Reader updates?
2) a side-effect of the malware infections?
3) Malwarebytes disabling the plugin?

Mine are on. I only disable it if I hear of a yet-to-be patched exploit out there.
Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.
