“Not all is worth cheering about as Adobe turns 20,” writes reader adeelarshad82, who excerpts from a story at PC Magazine’s Security Watch: “Researcher Aviv Raff has found a problem in ADM (Adobe Download Manager) and the method through which it is delivered from adobe.com. The net effect of the problem is that a user can be tricked into downloading and installing software using ADM without actual consent. Tonight Adobe acknowledged the report and said they were working on the issue with Raff and NOS Microsystems, the company that wrote ADM.”
