Foxit PDF Reader 4.2

Foxit PDF Reader is a small, fast, and feature rich PDF viewer for Microsoft Windows, which allows you to open, view, and print any PDF file. Foxit PDF Reader is secure, offering 3-three levels of PDF viewing security to protect against malicious PDF files. The following is a list of exciting new features in Foxit Reader 4.2.

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.
Just update your Foxit Reader from Brothersoft!

Repost from: Foxit PDF Reader Update to Version 4.2


  1. Tried PDF Xchange?

    I have found it is faster and more stable than Foxit. It was the only one that would render and print a 20MB PDF from AutoCAD for me recently. It comes with a Windows shell extension that gives you thumbnails for the 1st page in Windows Explorer.

    They also have a (non-free) PDF generator that does a great job as a system printer from AutoCAD.

  2. Yes, PDF Xchange have great products.

    I've especially used their API products to automate modifications of PDF files like adding approval stamps and so on that we integrated with our document management system.

    It's good to have options to Adobe Reader.
