I saw Rafter's opined on PDF vector virus/malware / badware in another thre=
ad that Dust in had polluted, so I repost in this one.=20

I am curious how a PDF virus would work.  On occasion I get updates from Ad=
obe Acrobat Reader saying they are trying to close some potential security =
exploit in reading PDF, but I've never heard of a PDF virus.  Anybody?  How=
would that work?  Is there a link to one?  A newspaper article, not a malw=
are website.

Speaking of malware websites, where is one that we can test using TotalViru=
s to see if it's a bad website?
