Acrobat Reader DC 2019.010.20098

Adobe logoAdobe’s Acrobat/Reader line of PDF viewers was recently updated to address a single security issue.

Although there are several variations of Acrobat and Reader, the one of interest to most people is the freeware Acrobat Reader DC (Continuous). That’s the one you probably have installed on your computer. The new version for that variant is 2019.010.20098.

Recent versions of Reader seem to update themselves in the background, courtesy of an update service called ARM that gets installed along with Adobe products. You can check which version you’re running by navigating Reader’s menu to Help > About Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
