  Last one about Adobe
Adobe has announced the steps it is going to taken with regards to the increasing amount of PDF security issues the world is being exposed to.

Here's the post.

In summary, Adobe is going to do 3 things:


  1. Code Hardening: (aka) From now on Adobe will start releasing code without bugs, really.
  2. Incident Response Process Improvements: (aka) Adobe will not wait weeks and weeks anymore before reacting on the next major security issue that pops with their software.
  3. Regular Security Update: (aka) Start your update engines! Adobe is going preparing an update treadmill so you can have all those valuable security patches quicker, and more regularly.


This last one actually puzzles me a bit, because it's not that the 'Adobe Updater' is a silent app on my machines.

Anyway, it's clear that the horse has left the stable, and Adobe is going in ├╝ber damage control and starts to chase it.

Fact is: with PDF more security troubles lie ahead, and Adobe admits this.
Adobe says that they will be better prepared to react.
Are you?

(and now I'm going to get off Adobe's/PDF's back for a while)
