Hi. My first question so please be gentle!

There is much publicity today about Windows Updates and others. Two leading experts have said how important  it is to update Adobe Acrobat Reader but I can't find any mention of ReaderDC. I've just checked the Adobe site and it says my ReaderDC is up-to-date but there'd no record of the update on my PC. What should I do please?

DC is just like a version number or label. So Reader DC is still Reader; it's the only Reader there is currently. It used to be called Adobe Reader too. It automatically updates without asking you, but it's still good to check it's up to date.

What do you mean exactly by "there'd no record of the update on my PC?"

typo's: there'd = there's / ReaderDC = Reader DC

Can't find an 'Edit Post' function

Can't find a box to tick for automatic email notifications of replies - is there one or is this done automatically, please?

Hello Test Screen Name. You're right in saying that I'm up-to-date - see my post to Bernd.

Re [typo corrected] "there's no record of the update on my PC", what I mean is that every update/change leaves a footprint, WUs>Settings>History probably being the most obvious one. Perhaps this Adobe update is recorded in the Event Viewer?

Hi Bernd. When I first decided to install Adobe Reader I went to CNET or one of the other suchlike sites. I was never asked to choose between Continuous or Classic so I first presumed I had Classic. I now find that what was installed is Adobe Acrobat Reader DC version 18.011.20055 which I see is the latest Continuous Track release - I'm up to date! So the notifications from Krebs and Qualys are both wrong? Here's what Krebs said on the 11th July: Microsoft and Adobe each issued security updates for their products today.
Microsoft's July patch batch includes 14 updates to fix more than 50 security flaws in Windows and associated software. Separately, Adobe has pushed out an update for its Flash Player browser plugin, as well as a monster patch
bundle for Adobe Reader/Acrobat. Linked to https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/acrobat/apsb18-21.html

Obviously the reference to 'monster patch' started me off.

The upshot is that I'm up to date - and that's what matters. Thanks.
