If I read Inappropriate Use of Adobe Code Signing Certificate my conclusion is that anything signed by the Adobe Code Signing Certificate since 2012-07-10 potentially can be malware.
As a precaution, I will manually revoke the certificate on all my systems (that’ll take a while!). If anyone knows how to automate that process, please post a comment showing how to.
Hitching on a trusted certificate of a big software company comes close to the ultimate hack: trojaning signed malware in the distribution of an OS vendor.
