Foxit Software has released version 3.3.1 of Foxit Reader. This program is an alternative to Adobe Reader. It can handle most PDF documents very well, but complex or very large documents can sometimes be a little too much of a challenge. However, it is a godsend for computers with limited resources. The program is free, but for certain functions, which are part of the so-called pro pack must be paid. An example is the function to comment on a PDF file. In version 3.3.1, the following new security measure has been introduced:
The New Foxit Reader has implemented a new screening process which protects end users from misleading messages embedded within the parameters of a pop-up dialog box. A pop-up dialog contains an area which is reserved for a message that is generated by the rendered PDF. Due to Foxit’s concern that this message may mislead users to take an unadvisable action, Foxit Reader will no longer display the content of the message and removes any parameters within the Pop-up message that can be manipulated by the PDF.
