Well at least they are fixing the bugs before they are generally exploited.

But yea it's pretty sad and I fully understand why Apple hates Flash.

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities, eh? It's pretty clear to me at this point that Adobe is employing undergrads as developers for Flash. The internet should be running full speed away from this product (and Java too).

1.) Bounds checking of buffers is basic stuff that any CS grad should be implementing as second nature.

2.) Buffer overflows are easily audited in code. What kind of half-assed quality assurance is going on at Adobe?

I think Adobe should be fined at this point. Their negligent coding practices are putting millions of users at risk of malware infection.
