Let’s face it, the internet has become a very insecure place. Internet users fear that their information is at risk. Adobe builds strong security capabilities into all of their products. They’ve partnered with respected industry standards organizations, such as the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and the Software Assurance Forum for Excellence in Code (SAFECode). Adobe goal is to ensure that the latest security information and best practices are always your fingertips.

Here’s an example of Application Security in programs such as Acrobat , Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player.

  • Available as part of the free Adobe Reader X PDF viewer, Protected Mode limits the level of access to your system for all PDF files, safeguarding Windows desktops from malicious code that tries to write to the computer’s file system, delete files, or otherwise modify system information. Protected Mode is enabled by default whenever you launch Reader, reducing the risk of potential security threats on client systems via persistent malware.
  • The Acrobat X Family now offers sophisticated and granular controls for managing JavaScript execution for both Windows and Mac OS machines. This flexible approach allows JavaScript to be used as a part of business workflows, while helping to protect users and systems. You can use the controls to: Turn the JavaScript engine on or off, Enable or disable JavaScript-invoked URLs, Disable specific JavaScript APIs using the Adobe JavaScript Blacklist Framework and Control the execution of high-privileged JavaScript, independently of other permissions.
  • Some of the Flash Player team’s privacy efforts are happening around a feature of Flash Player called “local storage”, often called local shared objects or local stored objects (LSOs), and sometimes incorrectly referred to as “Flash cookies”. Local storage is required functionality to provide the quality web experience you expect from today’s rich Internet applications (RIAs). It is used by a number of Web technologies, including Flash Player and similar plugin technologies, as well as browsers that support HTML5.
