Adobe will start producing regular bug fixes and patches for Acrobat Reader to tie in with Microsoft's Patch Tuesday updates.

In a blog posting yesterday Brad Arkin, Director of Product Security and Privacy at Adobe, said: "Based on feedback from our customers, who have processes and resources geared toward Microsoft's 'Patch Tuesday' security updates, we will make Adobe's quarterly patches available on the same days."

Adobe has been criticised in the past for its lack of coordination in releasing patches.

Brad Arkin said the company has been working since February to improve software security. "Everything from our security team's communications during an incident to our security update process to the code itself has been carefully reviewed."
