      To be honest, I’m not really sure. But Adobe software does try to contact this service while you are using it.
      It is a certificate revocation list hosted by Verisign. You don’t really need it, since certificates are mostly used for on line identity.
      My theory is, Adobe uses it for authenticating their activation service’s security certificates. All of the data Adobe send to their activation servers is encrypted.
      Go ahead and remove it if you want and tell me if it affects the activation of Adobe products.
