Flash Player - or a Prayer?
How is it that one simple application can be so tremendously vulnerable? I can see the surface area of an entire OS such as Windows having lots of vectors, but a simple PDF reader?
I use Foxit software whenever I can but various browsers seem to want to drag in Adobe's products. I'm almost more afraid to apply their hastily-assembled patches than Redmond's. And yet I'll update my Linux distros with nary a concern. Backups before most major ones, of course.
