Thanks for the heads up.
Since that just looks like the official site to download Foxit Reader, and not someplace to find out about the hack, live link is killed in case the software is hacked/poisoned or highly vulnerable.

Do you have a link to the security flier?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
