Open Source Sorftware Security

<< < (2/2)

Where the program is downloaded from makes a difference in security sometimes.
There are some sites I don't trust, though they have programs I do trust.

Hm, I don't know if there has been exploits for Foxit Reader (or Sumatra, which is both freeware and open-source) - but Acrobat Reader has had security hole(s) that were exploitable by maliciously crafted .pdf files.

Presumably you're referring to the JavaScript exploit found last year, in which case no, Sumatra and Foxit were not found to be vulnerable.
