A vulnerability exists in version CS5 and earlier that could be exploited by a malicious attacker who tricks you into opening a boobytrapped .TIF file in order to take control of your computer.
The only fix that Adobe is making available is for users to upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Photoshop CS6. And that’s going to cost users $199 or more. (If you aren’t eligible for the upgrade, it will cost $600).
Adobe has no plans to publish a free security fix because Photoshop “has historically not been a target for attackers” the risk level doesn’t make it worthwhile to produce a fix that users don’t have to pay for.
Chissà se pensavano che anche Flash Player e Acrobat Reader (due prodotti notoriamente oggetto di exploit causa innumerevoli bug) have historically not been a target for attacker.
