Adobe Joins Microsoft's MAPP Program Posted by Mikko @ 20:16 GMT

Greetings from Black Hat 2010!

Black Hat 2010

So far the biggest announcement has been that Adobe will join MAPP (Microsoft Active Protections Program) and will start sharing vulnerability information for all Adobe products through it. This means that MAPP partners, such as F-Secure, will get advance notifications of vulnerabilities in products such as Adobe Reader or Flash, enabling us to better protect our users.

Regular readers of our blog will know that we have often been quite critical of Adobe. But here we want to give them full credit for a good move.

The conference has just started and there should be more interesting stuff coming up. I will be delivering my talk tomorrow. It's titled "You Will Be Billed $90,000 For This Call".

Signing off,
