Adobe recently announced some key changes in the enhanced security feature with the January 2010 release of Acrobat & Reader.

1. Acrobat/Reader Trusted Sites now recognize files that comes from Windows Trusted Sites.

2. All of the enhanced security modal dialogs have been converted into information bar (i.e., yellow information bar that you would see in IE browser when you come across an ActiveX control). It allows end users to add sites to the privileged locations through the information bar if they run into cross domain connections in the context of their workflows.

I joke with the audience that obviously this is not a real document or we’re all in a lot of trouble, but the real point is

How would you know if the document is real or not?
