Adobe Reader is relied upon by hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. We understand that with such wide usage comes responsibility, and protecting our end-users is a top priority. Over the last year, Adobe has publicly discussed a number of product security initiatives around Adobe Reader—starting with the May 2009 blog post by Brad Arkin, Adobe’s senior director of product security and privacy.
Today, Adobe is announcing the next major step in our Adobe Reader product security initiative—the development of Adobe Reader Protected Mode (in the technical community referred to as “sandboxing”). For additional details on this announcement, see today’s Adobe Security Software Engineering Team (ASSET) blog post by Brad Arkin.
