I'm afraid that I don't use Illustrator that often, so when I saw this bulletin ( http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb10-01.html), I put off doing anything about it until today. When I went to go through the process, several things surprised me:
Given that the whole point of the bulletin was to patch AI to close a hole allowing the possibility of "arbitrary code execution" by someone with malicious intent, isn't it strange not to provide a way of making sure that you aren't going to actively install malicious code yourself, particularly since you have to have administrator rights to do the installation?
Please tell me what I'm missing or how I can pass this concern on to the good people at Adobe. Installing un-authenticated code downloaded from a link on a web page makes my skin crawl!
Sorry friend, Adobe does not care! Adobe only wants to sell you the "New Version"
