    Unexpected features in Acrobat 7

    Take a look here.

    It seems something like a spyware...

    Hey if everybody opened the same document at the same time we could DDOS their asses to oblivion.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    It'd be like flushing all the toilets in the building at the same time...

    LOL, Curio, i'm sure that could be considered as 'terriorism'... what are some keywords for their spiders... My mate Osame from IRAQ wants us to DDOS FBI website for satellite photos of US marine bases...

    That should be enough right?

    Just imagine how much unnecessary traffic that it's going to create - and what if everybody decides to do the same with their applications, they probably will all want to jump on the bandwagon?
    It's downright irresponsible and they should be considered as spammers.

    Please excuse me, if I do not think that is really all that funny.

    Yeah you are right it is not funny... but a good exercise nonetheless... we all need to look at the bright (funny) side of some of the hidden technologies that turn this 'democracy' into a spy-game.

    Just try to think how many spiders would have read that post, and then it was backed up with your post (copy)... several keywords would have triggered some machines to flick red.

    So taking this analogy to topic (sort of), Microsoft wants everyone to update to patches and lets all access WUS together hence they impart a DDOS themselves
