Foxit Fix for “Jailbreak” PDF Flaw.

According to an advisory Foxit issued last week, Foxit Reader version 4.1.1.0805 “fixes the crash issue caused by the new iPhone/iPad jailbreak program which can be exploited to inject arbitrary code into a system and execute it there.” If you use Foxit, you grab the update from within the application (“Help,” then “Check for Updates Now&#8221 or from this link.

Preferred Solution: Foxit Fix for “Jailbreak” PDF Flaw

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been using the Foxit reader for sometime now but recently ran into a file I can't read because apparently it has Chinese/Japanese or Korean characters. I've troubleshooted it and learned that I must download the FPDFCJK.BIN file ...I've done that but I'm not sure where to put it. I've installed Foxit in my Program Files folder and I've put the FPDFCJK.BIN file in there but doesn't work... where does it go?

Thanks,
JTN
 

A:FoxIt - where to put FPDFCJK.BIN?

"Eastern Asian Language Support: Foxit Reader supports Chinese/Japanese/Korean character sets, but you will need to download an additional support package named "FPDFCJK.BIN" (about 1.8MB), it can be downloaded here. It should be placed in your Foxit Reader folder"

Which would imply that the file, in your case, should go in \Program Files\Foxit, if that is where you have installed it.

There is also a zip file attached to this post which appears to be fixing the same problem.

hi !

WARNING ABOUT FOXIT READER 4 !

"Foxit Reader has long been the most visible Windows alternative to Adobe Reader, but with its latest update, this popular freeware falters slightly. While the jump from version 2 to version 3 cut bloat while adding in a few features, version 4 adds some new features but also throws some unpleasant curveballs.

The setup process has grown more cumbersome. It will automatically check you into the Foxit license agreement, and you are also opted-in to install the Foxit Search Bar that changes your default search provider to Ask and makes Ask.com your home page. It also opts you into the Foxit add-on for Firefox, and into creating desktop, quick launch, and Start menu icons that link to eBay. Also, in our tests, it commandeered the default PDF reader setting even though we unchecked that box."

   Warning
Make sure you read the installation instructions very carefully if you don't want any Ask software installed along with it.



   Information

Verify the digital signature
Foxit Reader 4.2 now features a PDF digital signature verification technology which uses an enhanced, yet ISO 32000 compliant, verification process that ensures the signature is real and neither the document nor the signature have been compromised. This new verification process provides a secure and reliable platform for exchanging electronics documents without putting the user at risk from falsified documents.
Enhance security with ASLR & DEP support
Foxit Reader 4.2 continues to add features that increase security by making it harder for hackers to compromise a PDF document. The current version of the reader includes Address Space Layout Randomization, ASLR, which uses a random algorithm to determine a memory address used to store key file data. A second security feature is Data Execution Prevention, DEP, which simply prevents executing code from a non-executable memory location. ASLR and DEP combine to highly improve Foxit Reader Security and provide a stable platform for enterprise, business and consumer, Foxit Reader users.

One way around it is to download the zip version instead of the exe or msi versions, as the zip version doesn't need to be installed. With the zip version just download and unzip, place the unzipped exe wherever you want and run it once, then it will work anytime you open a PDF.

I have been using this program for about a year with no problems.  Tonight when I updated to the latest version from the official website, it tried to install conduit toolbar malware.  Luckily my antivirus caught it before it could work its full range of horrors on my browser, and I uninstalled it with malwarebytes and adwcleaner.  If you want to keep using Foxit, make sure that you don't use express install when updating.  Custom install gives you the option not to install the toolbar with no explanation beforehand.  HOW SNEAKY IS THAT?
As for me, I've already uninstalled Foxit, and will give PDF Xchange a try.  I hope I've helped someone avoid this terrible malware!

I have produced a large number (over 500) pdf files from Word 2010 using either Foxit Reader or the internal feature in Word. On my computer they both work equally well but our secretary reports that certain ones do not open on her computer. I think these might be some or all of the Foxit ones.

One clue is that I see a banner above the viewer window in Explorer for the Foxit ones but not the Word 2010 ones. See attachments.

When this occurs I replace it with a pdf from Word and all is well. Does anyone know if pdf's produced with Foxit are sometimes a problem and, if so, whether there is a setting or work around?

There is a security option from many years ago that prevented documents with attachments from opening the attachments. I thought it had been patched, but obviously you still have to go into the options and allow them. It is a one time job since the option is remembered by user.

RELEVANCY SCORE 38.8

Hello. Whenever I try to go to Foxitsoftware.com, I get redirected to a site that looks nothing like Foxit Software. I've reset the DNS cache, cleared all of the browser files, and no go; it still displays the same site. Interestingly enough, on a different computer, it displays the actual site. The Hosts file is clean, and I don't get any redirects from any other site besides this one. So, what do I do to fix this?

My Computer is running Windows 7 by the way.

Attached is an image of the site that comes up and a HiJackThis log.
 

A:Can't see Foxit Software site

Interesting. I'm using Chrome on Ubuntu, and when I went to their site it was redirected to the same site as you.

I then used Firefox and it took me to the correct site.

Now I went back to it in Chrome, and it displays the correct site again.
