Monthly security updates for Adobe/Macromedia products

I was reading PCWorld.com and I've learn that Adobe will begin releasing security patches on a predictable, monthly basis, "much as Microsoft has been doing since October 2003." The monthly security patches update will cover Macromedia products as well.

"Macromedia, which was recently acquired by Adobe, had been planning to move to a monthly schedule in December. But with the merger, those plans have been pushed back so that the monthly alerts can be done on a company-wide basis"
said Adrian Ludwig, Adobe's manager of secure software engineering. Read the article here.
