Adobe Growing Attack Target?

Here's a thought-provoking item from eWeek about how Adobe software could be a growing attack vector. Why Adobe, and why now?

The article gives two reasons. Adobe PDFs and other products are becoming vital parts of many companies businesses. How many times have you gotten PDFs for everything from sales brochures to white papers? I'd bet more and more.

Second, Adobe is integrating Flash into its documents, increasing the attack space tremendously. Flash has already been victimized, and the two together now increase the combined threat.
