I just read a article at pro-linux.de http://www.pro-linux.de/news/2005/7974.html that acroread-7
can develop a remote connection without your knowing to spy you out.
I recommend to rename the plugin folder as mentioned in the article, to cut off this behaviour.
Created attachment 54949 [details]
Updated ebuild that renames the plug_ins folder to plug_ins.disabled and
informs the user about the behaviour of acroread.
I don't think this is critical. Whatever you do, please don't add a negating ("no*") use flag. We have enough of them and they need all to be changed.
For now you can just disable it in the preferences if you are concerned that documents you are using might "phone back", I think disabli.
I am not quite sure which plugin is causing it:
Internet Access Plug-in, EFS.api: "This plug-ins provides Internet Access for Acrobat."
ruben: please use diff -u old.ebuild new.ebuild for attachments
This is a "feature", not a vulnerability. A warning would be nice, and maybe this should be disabled by default... but it's really the printing team choice.
