Why does Adobe require DAILY updates? Are they just trying to push McAfee on everyone?

I think it is both - Flash is buggy software, and they ARE trying to push McAfee Security Scan.  I find it borderline dishonest that they are making the default to install McAfee.  Frankly, I consider McAfee Security Scan pretty much malware too, as the only thing it does is to push McAfee products, and by making it default install the companies are clearly ok with the fact that many people who install it don't actually want it.  The thing is this isn't new - Adobe and McAfee have been working together to install unwanted software for years.  Here is a guardian article from 2010 warning people about the same thing.
