Adobe to release security updates a la Patch Tuesday

Adobe to release security updates a la Patch Tuesday

Adobe said on Wednesday it will release quarterly security updates to coincide with Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday as part of a new approach to product security for Adobe Reader and Acrobat.

The security updates will be delivered on a second Tuesday once a quarter, beginning this summer, Brad Arkin, director of product security and privacy, wrote in a blog post. Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday updates are issued monthly on the second Tuesday.

Adobe security patches released on Patch Tuesdays March 10 and May 12 were coincidental, the post said. The most recent patch fixed a hole in Flash Media Server 3.5.1 and earlier that could allow an attacker to execute remote procedures in Flash Media Interactive Server or Flash Media Streaming Server.
