    I just got this alert from Clam Xav. [​IMG]

    Should I delete the individual file, or is it a big deal? I Have yet to update to 10.5.7, but I wanted to know if this is anything major.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, from the output, the file is already in the trash. So just empty the trash and be on your way. It's a low risk threat for Windows that affects Adobe PDF files.

    Alright, Thanks for the information - Does it even do anything on OS X ?

    Doubt it, but you should still get rid of it.

    No. It only effected Adobe Reader on Windows, and most people use Preview for viewing them on OSX anyways. Also version 9 fixed the issues that it exploited.
