  1. We are using adobe Acrobat reader (free). There are a lot of files that comes with the reader that tries to run on the PCs, we can see their Hashes but we cannot know if these files are legit or not.

 

I tried to find a website or document that may help me know if these files are safe but no luck. And it seems that i can't contact the support unless i have a paid product.

 

So my question is how  to know that these adobe  files are safe or not? I mean they should at least keep a page or website just to let us know if a specific file in the adobe reader folder is legiy and safe.

Adobe do not provide hashes or inventories for any product. But... If you are really using Adobe Reader rather than Acrobat Reader, you certainly have a security problem.

It's actually Acrobat Reader, i iave updated the post. Thanks.

 

Is there a way to confirm that these files are safe? Like a support email address?

 

For example some of the files has "Adobe Inc." as the publisher name, how can i confirm that this name is the correct one.

There’s no support for free products. 

Dud you check the executable signatures? That has replaced hashes as a means of validation.

The certificate name is A"Inc. Acrobat DC Adobe Inc. San Jose ca US 2748129 Private Organization Delaware US"

 

I know by this the file looks from Adobe, but usually i got confirmation from the organization that created the file. But because this is free i got an issue in getting the confirmation

Check the certificate chain to be sure it is authentic. If it is authentic, you may stop worrying.

I don't think Adobe issue inventories for any software, free or paid for. Just too much trouble I guess.
