Submission + - Adobe Download Manager Installing Without Consent

adeelarshad82 writes: Not all is worth cheering about as Adobe turns 20.

The net effect of the problem is that a user can be tricked into downloading and installing software using ADM without actual consent. Tonight Adobe acknowledged the report and said they were working on the issue with Raff and NOS Microsystems, the company that wrote ADM.
