Foxit Reader 3.3
The new Foxit Reader further enhances PDF document viewing security by implementing a Safe Mode feature.
In its continued efforts of providing safer, faster and more stable PDF software tools, Foxit addresses recent security concerns by releasing a new version of its popular Foxit Reader. This is a follow-up security improvement to the Foxit Reader release on April 2nd, 2010. Earlier this month, Foxit Reader adopted a warning message before running any executable command embedded in a PDF document. Version 3.3 adds a second level of security by giving the user an option for disabling all external commands. The new Trust Manager allows users to select a safe mode operation, once selected; no external commands will be executed by the Foxit Reader. The Trust Manager feature is easy-to-use and can be selected or deselected within the reader at the discretion of the reader.
A second feature within the new reader is an improved Foxit toolbar installation menu. In version 3.2, a number of Reader users reported that the Foxit toolbar was being installed without being notified. Foxit acknowledges this error and has resolved the issue in this new release.
