Replacementdocs seems to have a huge problem.

I was at the site ca. 5 minutes ago, and out of nowhere Foxit Reader (my replacement for Acrobat Reader) popped up an error message saying : "Not a PDF or corrupted."

Seemingly someone wants to exploit a security issue in Acrobat Reader from there …

Interestingly, I got the Foxit Reader error message pop up even AFTER I had closed the Firefox tab of the "Replacement Docs" site !

The message has arrived there, too : Before closing the Firefox tab of that site, I saw a message about "eplacentdocs" being marked as an infected site somewhere …
