    Adobe changing patch frequency to monthly

    Will cover all Adobe products including Macromedia which they recently purchased. I guess I didnt realize that they have been releasing all that many patches to warrant monthly.

    Hey ric-o

    We had a thread a few days back about attacks on software other than MS...............I did put Adobe in the frame for that one..............I had heard a few rumours that this was already an ongoing thing (so no requests for race horse names or lottery numbers )

    This seems to confirm it?

    Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, over past year we've seen an increase in attacks and vuln research against security software like av, firewalls, ids, etc...makes sense that non-MS would be targeted since it seems have less focus/attention by admins.

    Also seeing tons more fake security websites. One recent one for McAfee (see http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archi....html#00000733) and of course Microsoft.

    aww...no lottery nums? Oh well, dont need them I win the UK lottery everyday according to the emails I get.
