    Picked as best answer

    I’d stay continue to stick with Adobe Reader. It’s hardly the first time anyone found a venerability in Java or Adobe Reader.

    The main reason these vulnerabilities have been found isn’t because the programs are bad, but because they are popular products. Adobe has security teams that focus on responding to these types of issues with rapid fixes. So just keep your software up to date.

    Even though, that being said that I should stick with Adobe/Java.
    Is there another PDF that’s out there? Don’t like Adobe
    Next secure , unpopular, would be the right one for me.
    Thank-You for your advice

    Note that none of them are inherently “more secure”.
