Release date: July 10, 2007
Vulnerability identifier: APSB07-13
CVE number: CVE-2007-2244, CVE-2007-2365
Platform: All Platforms
Affected software versions: Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop CS3
Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Photoshop CS2 and CS3 that could allow an attacker who successfully exploits these potential vulnerabilities to take control of the affected system. A malicious BMP, DIB, RLE, or PNG must be opened in Photoshop by the user for an attacker to exploit these potential vulnerabilities. Users are recommended to update their installations with the patches provided below, and Adobe encourages all customers to be cautious before opening any unknown file, regardless of which application they may be using.
Adobe recommends all Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop CS3 users update their installations using the instructions below:
Photoshop CS3 customers can use the Macintosh or Windows updaters to update their installations:
Photoshop CS3 users can also utilize the product's automatic update facility. The default installation configuration runs automatic updates on a regular schedule, and can be manually activated by choosing Help > Check For Updates Now.
Adobe categorizes this as a critical update and recommends affected users update their software installations.
Multiple input validation errors have been identified in Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop CS3 which could lead to the potential execution of arbitrary code. These vulnerabilities are not remotely exploitable, but could, for instance, be triggered by opening a malicious BMP, DIB, RLE or PNG file delivered to a user via their e-mail client. Users are recommended to update their installations with the patches provided below, and Adobe encourages all customers to be cautious before opening any unknown file, regardless of which application they may be using. These issues were previously publicly disclosed by a third party (CVE-2007-2244 and CVE-2007-2365).
