Adobe Please Fix Your Software

I was configuring a new Varonis server today and needed to download Adobe Reader so that we can access the documentation. I went to the Adobe web site and clicked on the download button. When I finish the installation, what do I find out? That they are still installing 9.3.0 by default! This is the unpatched version that has been the subject of a number of exploits. If a random user who doesn't deal with security on a daily basis installed this, they could be hosed. I ran the updates, but many people wouldn't. Adobe, please release a version that includes the patches built-in.
