Seems like there's a critical vulnerability identified in Adobe Reader, also 
applicable to Linux.. Since Adobe apparently doesn't have any plans to fix this 
for another three weeks, would it be an idea to put a warning in the acroread 
SlackBuild in the meantime?


Which also brings up a related question, if there perhaps is a need for a 
slackbuilds-security mailing list to warn against possible vulnerabilities in 
a SlackBuild. It's a more-than-dual-egged-sword challenge, since keeping that 
up-to-date would be a nightmare and warning on some programs might give false 
sense of security of others... 
Still perhaps worth a debate?

Just my $.02
