Hackers' Agenda: Get Windows 7, Adobe

First off: Happy New Year! Hope everyone made it safely through these crazy holidays. If you were stuck in a TSA line the last few days, you've got my sympathies.

Speaking of safe: Microsoft's newest OS has been running full speed in sales since its release. That means, of course, that it's bound to become a big hacker target as its adoption grows. But Nick Eaton over at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer blogs about Adobe's apps being an even bigger target. Eaton cites McAfee experts who claim Flash and Acrobat to be a bit easier to compromise via e-mail attachments.

So, to start off 2010, who's going to be first to tell me why they think Nick's sources are right (or wrong, for that matter)? First one to e-mail me with a valid comment gets a cool Redmond Media Group t-shirt.
