Adobe predicted as top 2010 hacker target

Unsurprising

This is not surprising in the slightest. Both Adobe and Google applications install constantly running background services on our computers that occasionally phone home. These potential backdoors should be considered bad practise industry-wide for both security and resource hogging reasons. Windows certainly shouldn't allow them to be installed without a very specific warning. Ie. Not just an admin privileges prompt, but a "Do you want to block this potential vulnerability" prompt.
