The Next Major Step in Adobe Reader Security

Adobe Reader has a ubiquity and cross-platform reach that few software products can match. This same ubiquity and reach has attracted increasing attention from attackers looking to target the largest possible number of users for maximum gain. 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, about a major security initiative underway for both Adobe Reader and Acrobat.

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.

This is exciting news and demonstrates our commitment to help protect our users in the face of a constantly evolving threat landscape. Adobe products are relied on by individuals and organizations worldwide, and the security of our products and customers will always be a key priority for us.
