Adobe announced last week that there are eight vulnerabilities, security bulletins and advisories, for Photoshop CS5 and earlier, and Illustrator and Flash Pro CS5.5 and earlier.

adobeAn article at Computerworld reports that Adobe announced last week that there are eight vulnerabilities, security bulletins and advisories, for Photoshop CS5 and earlier, and Illustrator and Flash Pro CS5.5 and earlier. Some users are pretty upset over this because the only way to patch these security holes is with a paid upgrade. However, the Adobe Response Team Blog issued a statement yesterday  that they will resolve these vulnerabilities with patches.

Note, the Computer World article states Photoshop 5 and Illustrator and Flash Professional 5.5 but it is CS5, clearly stated later in the artlcle. "The vulnerabilities in Photoshop could be exploited with malicious .tif image files, Adobe said. It did not describe the possible attack vectors against Illustrator or Flash Professional." 

We will let you know when these patches are available. If you have not upgraded, in the meantime, here is the Adobe section in our store.
