I searched and didn't find your IP in our logs.

Nice.  I personally don't have a Mac, so what program are you using to look at the PDF?  Apple Preview?
I've also noticed that almost every third party application in Linux that can look at a PDF is also safe from this.
I think this is Adobe specific.  I'm going to make a listed of affected and non-affected PDF viewers.

Thank you for trying this out.

Can you check your logs to see if this leaked me?

Pacific daylight time: 9:40 pm
Real IP address (this time, dynamic):

Apple Preview, opened via Firefox, not in-browser but as an external app.

It's not the official Adobe software :-)
