In the email above we removed the links to the evil website with strikethroughs.  Adobe have stated in their news bulletin that updates are only available via the official Adobe Reader download page and not from any other source.

If you have opened this email and went to the website get your computer guy to check your computer and or network for malicious software. You can look for Fortinet and learn more about network security.
