Adobe vulnerability management: Arkin on the new threat landscape

LAS VEGAS -- Brad Arkin and Adobe Systems Inc. have had to endure a lot of ribbing at Black Hat 2010. Arkin, senior director of product security and privacy at Adobe, attended the Adobe Hater's Ball on Wednesday. The event, hosted by security vendor SourceFire Inc., was attended by security researchers who think Adobe is not doing a good job protecting its applications. But Arkin is going on the offensive, trying to make the company's security processes more transparent. At the conference, Adobe announced that it would join Microsoft's Active Protections Program, giving out early vulnerability data so security vendors can produce signatures to block attacks against flaws discovered in Adobe Reader, Acrobat and Adobe Flash. In this interview, Arkin explains Adobe vulnerability management and security strategies moving forward.
