For Foxit's sake: Windows and Mac users alike urged to patch PhantomPDF over use-after-free vulns

"The software suite is widely used for manipulating PDFs, particularly by people whom, for whatever reason, eschew Adobe's products and pricing model."

Quite. Ignoring the unfortnate grammar flub, I really won't go near Acrobat these days due to epic bloat. I'll often let Firefox show me PDFs, but otherwise I use PDF-XChange Viewer* (because it's mildly less PLEASE PAY FOR ME than Foxit).

* Edit: Just seen that "PDF-XChange Viewer has been discontinued and replaced by PDF-XChange Editor - which is now available and includes all the features of the Viewer and much, much more..." Well, shit. So much for no bloat.
