Microsoft, Adobe Deepen Security Ties

Quote:

At the Black Hat security conference on Wednesday, Microsoft and Adobe announced they were dramatically expanding their relationship in order to better protect users against electronic threats. Now, Adobe will provide vulnerability information about its products via Microsoft's Active Protections Program (MAPP) to security solution vendors, as does Microsoft. Adobe is the first third party vendor to provide this crucial information, which will help security software makers more rapidly address new threats.

"Given the relative ubiquity of many of our products, Adobe has attracted increasing attention from attackers," Adobe senior director Brad Arkin said. "We are committed to our customers' security at every level and are excited to leverage MAPP as an important part of our overall product security initiative. MAPP is a great example of a tried and proven model giving an upper hand to a network of global defenders who all rally behind a shared purpose: protecting our mutual customers."

I'll believe this one when I see PROOF of it. Until then its just vaporware, Heck, they can't even produce a 64 bit flash player. Does anyone really believe their promises anymore. We've been made far too many promises only to have Adobe back pedal again and again without any results. Vaporware over and over ...........

Maybe someone important at Microsoft can talk to someone important at Adobe, and get it through his or her thick head that 64 bit computing really does exist, and it would be really nice if Adobe would embrace current technology, rather than trotting out stuff that supports a software model from 5 years ago. Maybe they'll also notice that there's been a couple of new versions of Windows since XP.

Oh wait, I was dreaming again. I thought I heard that Acrobat Standard went below $350. It sucks to live in a dream world and then have to wake up from time to time...

You realize that Silverlight isn't 64-bit either, right? As much as i like MS and their products, they are also guilty of being late to the 64-bit dance. While Office 2010 has a 64-bit version, if you have any 32-bit add-ons, they will not work in 64-bit.

While many here love their 64-bit, the majority of installs out there are still 32-bit. I don't think a pure 64-bit world is anywhere close. There is still no official word that Win 8 will be 64-bit only. There may still be a 32-bit version of that.

Hmmm.... I can't help but wonder is this in response to Adobe's feud with Apple

Sorry, I missed the sarcasm tag I just wanted to point out that we geeks are usually way ahead of the rest of the computer world.

Agreed. Most of the computer world can't seem to find the power switch.
