Each of these programs has experienced significant progress over the past year – from the introduction of a revised Exploitability Index rating system to a 29% increase in MAPP program membership. Microsoft will continue to refine these programs based on customer and industry feedback.

Some highlights from the report:
“Adobe is proud of its continued participation in the MAPP program and pleased with the positive feedback we’ve been getting from MAPP partners. Since the July 2010 MSRC Information Sharing report, Adobe’s participation in MAPP has grown from providing proof of concept documentation for exploits to providing full detection guidance and examples on virtually all Adobe Reader and Flash Player issues. We are pleased with the results of our participation in MAPP and value MAPP as a great example of companies working together to share information to help protect our mutual customers. Adobe has provided detection guidance to MAPP partners on 14 security updates since we began participating in the program.”
