ANOTHER adobe hacking possibility? These guys send out updates like BP cleans up oil spills.If they fail again, what do we get? A hardy handshake and apology? Or a smirk/shrug with some cheesy sitcom line?"Well, ya get what you pay for!"Wonder what the shareholders think....

It's not like it's the same issue each time... Vulnerabilities are bound to happen in just about any code, when one vulnerability gets fixed, the hackers attempt to find others. At least they're aware of it and are attempting to fix the issue.

While it's very difficult to put out code that's absolutely free of bugs, some do a far better job than others. Adobe's track record has been pretty bad in this respect.

I think Adobe's shareholders probably are quite satisfied that Adobe figured a method to limit piracy of their software (limits on ID#s) and are probably sleeping quite comfortably on their big freaking beds of money.As someone who works in graphic arts and photography... Adobe's done a pretty solid job of things.
