I had to blog this, since I saw a post come across Twitter earlier from a friend of mine commenting on how some PR people are sending around press releases on PDFs to him.
Oh, that's right ... PDFs are now considered tainted or potentially malicious attachments. So that means that you shouldn't ever open a PDF again? Or you COULD just run it through one of these online PDF conversion services, such as this one (http://view.samurajdata.se/) ...right?
But my point is a little deeper. Has the pendulum gone so far to the highly complex technologies side that we're now seeing a backlash against things like PDFs? Are PDFs now inherently untrusted attachments? If so ... do we revert back to text-only email?
Where does this end? What do you consider malicious attachments or technologies ...such that you'll avoid their use altogether?
