Adobe on Linux - holes are cross platform

This has just been announced:"Adobe joins Linux Foundation, develops AIR for Linux"OK, now the vulnerabillities from Adobe that sinked Windows on the Pwn2Own contest will be available for Linux users too. Those contests will be more fair now :-)Now seriously, it's impressive how people don't realize the importance of Adobe software security. We tend to believe that Windows is everywhere, but Adobe software (mostly because of PDF and Flash) is everywhere + those places where Windows is not present.If I have to bet on what software will be the infection vector for the next big Worm/Virus, I would point to something from Adobe.Does your patch management system/process deal with Adobe software too?
