Security & Content Protection In Adobe Flash Media Server 3

Some of you might have read an article published by Reuters on Friday, September 19th suggesting that Adobe Flash Media Server 3 and the RTMPE protocol are not secure. We feel it is important for our customers, users and members of the press to receive clarification given that the claims are factually incorrect.

Following is a statement we hope clears up the inaccuracies and claims from the story.

A recent article incorrectly states that a security flaw exists in Adobe Flash Media Server software. Adobe acknowledges that not all customers using Adobe Flash Media Server software are aware they must utilize RTMPe or RTMPte (tunneled version) combined with SWF verification to provide maximum content protection. Adobe is committed to the security of all products and is actively working to ensure all customers are educated on how to properly protect content delivery. For more information on using RTMPe or RTMPte and SWF verification, Adobe Flash Media Server 3 customers can go to http://adobe.com/go/kb405456.

CS4 is here!

Today Adobe announced Creative Suite 4, the biggest launch in the company’s history. We know what you’re thinking and yes we did say this when we launched CS3. However, the statement still holds true. For CS4, we not only updated all of the suites and 13 point products, Adobe has also added the support of several new services and technologies to the Creative Suite workflow.

We issued seven announcements today (yes, seven!) that highlight the Design editions, Web editions, Production Premium and Master Collection, as well as individual releases for InDesign, Photoshop and Device Central. Please visit the Adobe pressroom for all of the news.

We have also launched a newly redesigned Adobe TV site which includes 10 hours of CS4 content including feature tours, demos and tutorials.
