A flaw in Adobe System Inc, used to distribute streaming videos via Internet, granting access to record and copy from Amazon.com Inc’s Video streaming service.

Adobe Flaw

Security Experts says that ” The developers have concentrated more on the fast streaming of the video rather than the security, also Its not encrypting the payload contents while traveling in the net. ”

Adobe said it issued a security bulletin earlier this month about how best to protect online content and called on its customers to couple its software security with a feature that verifies the validity of its video player.
Amazon has been providing more than 40,000 movies and TV shows on its Web site on the VOD basis, also this cannot be copied or pirated using any video stream caching softwares.

Amazon.com’s Adobe-powered Video On Demand service allows viewers to watch the first two minutes of a movie or TV show for free. It charges up to $3.99 to rent a movie for 24 hours and up to $14.99 to download a movie permanently.
