Re: Does a secure pdf reader/creator exist?

You can use google docs and have it render the PDF for you. That would be a
nightmare with multi-k users but it's a good way to go from a security
perspective.

Greetings to all,

We all know that PDF (reader/creator) software is such a exploit target
nowadays. Yes, there are ways to mitigate the risks by turning off java and
the like.

We did a survey of our multi-k user base and NOBODY is using any of the
fancy bloat features built into the current rev PDF software across 50k+ pdf
files in our datastores.

So this begs the question in the subject line. We've looked at most of the
alternatives out there like foxit & nitro and it appears that they are going
down the same path as Adobe but just lagging behind. The creation tools are
secondary as most of the OS vendors are close to building this function into
the OS. Its the unsecure readers that are the problem.

Cost is somewhat secondary at this point as our resources are increasingly
being gobbled up with Adobe patching compliance.

Has anybody come across a secure pdf reader?

Thanks for the sage replies.
