pdf files can be backdoored

The Internet is an insecure place. Your boss does not allow you to surf the Internet, because he does not want his computers  infected by the private actions by his workforce, but the next time "they" open a backdoored pdf file?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
