New web site launch - Advance Notice ...

As many may have noticed, our site can be slow down at certain peak times - due to the major increase we have experienced in the popularity of our products over the past months and consequently those using our web site and download mirrors - therefore to combat this and to accommodate our 100% new web site we have made a major investment in new servers and upgraded bandwidth.

During the course of the week beginning 1st February, most likely Wednesday 3rd Feb 2010, we will launch our new web site and hardware/bandwidth - this could mean possible connection issues and some initial teething problems as a new server is also be installed to manage and improve the speed of our site generally.

This could also mean some delays for some users whilst the Internet registration body updates our DNS entries that convert all literal Internet addresses from text to 'IP' addresses.

We apologize in advance for any problems this may cause and thank all our clients in advance for their patience during this major update.

We should also advise in advance of another change coming in the course of the next few weeks - our primary URL/web domain will also be changing to www.tracker-software.com so please do not be alarmed if you see your web browser being redirected during the course of your browsing our site or requesting a download.

Kind regards
Tracker Software Products Ltd.

PDF-XChange Viewer - Update blocks possible vulnerability

Important Security Update issued 30 December 2009:
PDF-XChange Viewer Product Range – upda
te to release 2.044 recommended.
After consultation with Secunia Research (
http://www.secunia.com) Tracker Software Products Ltd has issued an update to all versions of its popular Free/Licensed PDF-XChange Viewer product family including both end user and developer product ranges.
On December 29th 2009, Secunia notified Tracker after testing, of the potential for malicious code to be executed to compromise users systems via PDF files, using a very specific means - though no such exploitation is known to have occurred to date, we felt we should act with some urgency to protect our clients.
Within 24 hours we are pleased to confirm an update was issued to all products blocking any such opportunity and all clients and developers are urged to update any versions of our PDF-XChange Viewer product to ensure that their systems are safe guarded.
All PDF-XChange Viewer and Viewer SDK versions prior to release 2.044
should be updated to a later release.


The PDF-XChange Viewer (FREE or PRO) is also offered as part of the PDF-XChange Lite,
Standard and PRO, and PDF-Tools product bundles - users of these products are urged to
update therefore also.
Developers using the PDF-XChange Viewer ActiveX SDK are urged to also update their clients
systems as soon as practical with a later release of their products incorporating the Viewer
SDK Version/Build 2.044 or later.
A full system uninstall, restart and re-install is recommended using downloads from the page
links below:

End user installer options:
https://www.tracker-software.com/downloads/users/
Developer SDK installer options:

Security Vulnerabilities in Acrobat Reader - is PDF-XChange affected ?

Recently we have been asked if the PDF-XChange Viewer is vulnerable to the latest attempted hack into users systems by groups attempting to exploit weakness in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, we have researched this thoroughly and we are pleased to confirm we are not !

The Adobe vulnerability is caused by some buffer overflow issue within their JBIG2 decoder. PDF-XChange uses our own JBIG2 decoder and therefore we are not subject to any code directed at exploiting flaws/weaknesses in Adobe's JBIG decoder

More information regarding Adobe vulnerability can be found at http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/905281 or http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/33751.

Any clients and users wishing to discuss this or any other related issue should feel free to contact us at any time.

Many thanks
