If you have Adobe Reader on your computer you should update it to the latest version of  11.0.11. There is a vulnerability in earlier versions that can allow an attacker to gain access to your system.  I copied the following information from Adobe's website.

Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Reader and Acrobat for Windows and Macintosh. These updates address vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take over the affected system.  Adobe recommends users update their product installations to the latest versions:

    Users of Adobe Reader XI (11.0.10) and earlier versions should update to version 11.0.11.

    Users of Adobe Reader X (10.1.13) and earlier versions should update to version 10.1.14.

    Users of Adobe Acrobat XI (11.0.10) and earlier versions should update to version 11.0.11.

    Users of Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.13) and earlier versions should update to version 10.1.14.

Affected software versions

    Adobe Reader XI (11.0.10) and earlier 11.x versions

    Adobe Reader X (10.1.13) and earlier 10.x versions 

    Adobe Acrobat XI (11.0.10) and earlier 11.x versions 

    Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.13) and earlier 10.x versions

Follow these instructions to patch Adobe Reader:
Launch Adobe Reader. Click Help, Click Check for Updates.

You may see a balloon in the lower right of your screen telling you Adobe Reader is checking for updates.
It may take a few minutes to download the update. When the update is ready to install the balloon will tell you it is ready.
Click on the balloon.

A new window appears informing you that the update is ready to install. Click Install.

The update will begin to install.
When the update is complete you may be prompted to reboot.  Save and close any open documents and click Restart Now.
Depending on which version of Adobe Reader you have you may need to re-run this update process several times until there are no updates available.  Like so:
Please call or email me if you have any questions.

Thank you ,
