Adobe Reader X for Windows, Mac and Linux

Adobe has released the latest version of it’s popular PDF reading program Adobe Reader X.

Adobe had announced the upcoming version of their Acrobat Family of Products last month with a new feature that provides better security via “Protected mode.” This feature is enabled by default in Adobe Reader X.

Protected Mode is a sandboxing technology based on Microsoft’s Practical Windows Sandboxing technique. It is similar to the Google Chrome sandbox and Microsoft Office 2010 Protected Viewing Mode.

With Protected Mode enabled, all PDF file operations will run in a restricted manner inside a confined environment, the “sandbox”. So, if you open a PDF document which has scripts include that may try to change your computer’s file system or registry settings the “Protected Mode” will protect you against it.

Reader X is also tightly integrated with Adobe SendNow, an online file sharing service. Using this service you will be able to send the PDF document you are reading to anyone without having to launch an email client. Other than PDF this service also allows you to send images and other office documents.
