Microsoft Cozies Up Even More to Adobe

Microsoft and Adobe have become so close of late, I'm wondering if an acquisition may be in order (that would be Redmond buying Adobe, not vice versa).

Adobe is using a Microsoft-built sandbox to protect PDFs, and Adobe patches will be part of Redmond's Patch Tuesday.

Microsoft is taking this a step further by distributing Adobe vulnerability information through the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP).

MAPP gives software vendor info on exploit flaws before they are patched, giving Microsoft partners a head start on closing their own holes.
