Adobe is warning its users of several vulnerabilities in PhotoShop Elements.
"According to the company, all versions from 1.0 up to and including 8.0 for Windows contain buffer overflow bugs, which Adobe rates as 'Critical;' these could potentially be exploited by an attacker to compromise a victim's system by executing arbitrary code," The H Security reports. "For an attack to be successful, a victim must first open a malicious gradient (.grd) or brush (.abr) file."
"As Photoshop Elements 8 is no longer supported, no updates will be provided to fix these bugs; version 9 and 10 are not affected," the article states.
