Adobe Photoshop CC 17.x < 17.0.2 / 18.x < 18.1 PCX File Handling Arbitrary Code Execution (APSB17-12) (macOS)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has an application installed that is affected by an
arbitrary code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Adobe Photoshop CC installed on the remote macOS or Mac
OS X host is 17.x prior to 17.0.2 (2015.5.2) or 18.x prior to 18.1
(2017.1.0). It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary code execution
vulnerability due to a memory corruption issue that is triggered when
handling PCX files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted PCX file, to
execute arbitrary code.
