Adobe Reader download still at 9.1

I can’t believe that after all this time the Adobe Reader offered from is still version 9.1 requiring another 27.6mb “upgrade” after the initial installation.

Seriously – how hard is it to provide an installer with the latest version of your software when old versions are extremely vulnerable to attack?

In case you are wondering, this is not my machine – so I don’t really have much choice on what pdf reader is installed. At home I am using Sumatra pdfreader as it is one small 1.4mb portable exe file rather than adobe’s 27mb download. It’s a tag ugly due to the bright yellow page displayed when no pdf is opened but once a pdf is opened it looks great.
