Disable the new security warning
in Acrobat and Distiller

Since the (unimportant) Acrobat update of April 9, 2019, users have been surprised by the following dialog box when converting PostScript and EPS files to PDF in Acrobat and Distiller:

This message appears in the following variants of Acrobat:

  • Acrobat DC: 2019.010.20099

Adobe has already published instructions for permanently disable this annoying security warning in Acrobat and Distiller.

An update to version 19.010.20100 for Windows has already been released on April 16, 2019, which prevents the security warning from opening while printing to Adobe PDF.

It seems the reason are problems with the synchronizing color settings using Adobe Bridge CC2019.
