Re: Updates 12/11/18 - Microsoft+Adobe+Firefox Tuesday

Just to note that my free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC automatically updated itself to this latest version, and as far as I can tell there are no settings in the GUI where I can toggle this to a manual download only.

Historically Adobe Reader was a real security risk and target for malware. I don't know where it stands currently, but I dislike on principle any software that takes liberties and installs new software without my explicit permission. Unfortunately I need Adobe Reader for work, so I can't ditch it. But I still keep Sumatra as my default PDF reader.
