Either I've just installed malware, or the Adobe Flash security update I just installed wasn't digitally signed by Adobe; it brought up the yellow for warning, this app isn't signed dialog. That's just completely unacceptable for any program, from any publisher, let alone from someone as big as Adobe, let alone for apps that have become targets for attacks. A digital certificate costs what, $99? $25 if you're cheap. The time to sign an update is what, 15 minutes of developer time? What that costs is peanuts compared to reassuring and protecting users. I'm almost hoping that I have got malware rather than that Adobe has been this lazy and cheap...

I'd add something else to that list of reasons. If they had signed them in the past then they would have to carry on signing them or risk the release being seen as not by them.
