According to McAfee's "2010 Threat Predictions" report, Adobe Systems' Flash and Acrobat Reader products will become the top targets for hackers in 2010, reports Computerworld.
With Microsoft tightening security in its recent OS releases, hackers are starting to look for additional targets. Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch says the company has "absolutely seen an increase in the number of attacks" and is
working to decrease the amount of time between when we know about a problem and when we release a fix.
Adobe seems to be working feverishly lately to address security issues in its Reader and Acrobat products, the latest being a zero-day exploit in the most up-to-date versions of the applications.
