Adobe heads top ten PC vulnerabilities list by Kaspersky Labs.

India, May 20 -- Being number one is usually an honor, but not when it comes to Kaspersky Lab's top ten PC vulnerabilities list. Unfortunately for the software giant, Adobe took top dishonors for Q1 this year, pulling in five total spots on the list, including the top three. According to the security firm, all of the vulnerabilities appearing on the list allowed cyber-criminals to control computers at the system level.

That isn't bad, considering Microsoft ruled the vulnerabilities list in 2010.
