Grahl Software Releases Security Update to PDF Annotator 2

boxshot_smGrahl Software Design has issued a security update to the popular PDF Annotator 2. They are also extending the holiday special on the new version. Details after the jump.


From the Grahl Newsletter:
Dear User,
I hope you survived the holidays, had a great time with your families and that the new decade has started well for you.
Many readers contacted me last week, because they just got back to their computers after the break, and realized that they missed our PDF Annotator holiday sale. So I thought we should give you a second chance: When you buy PDF Annotator between Friday and Sunday this week, you’ll save $20.
This offer is valid for all online purchases of PDF Annotator Regular License (not Student License) between Jan 15 (Friday) and Jan 17, 2010 (Sunday).
Important Security Update for PDF Annotator

Earlier this week, we received word from a supplier, whose rendering technology we use in PDF Annotator 2, about the potential for malicious code to be executed to compromise users’ systems via PDF files, using a very specific means. Though no such exploitation is known to have occurred to date, we felt we should act with some urgency to protect our clients.
All PDF Annotator versions prior to release should be updated to a later release.

Please update to PDF Annotator or later using the built-in Upgrade Wizard (Select Help, Version Check from the PDF Annotator menu) or download and install the latest version manually.
