Critical Nessus Plugin ID 62222


The remote host has an application that is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Adobe Photoshop installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to CS6 13.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by remote code execution vulnerabilities due to multiple buffer overflows. A remote attacker, using a crafted file, can exploit these to execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Adobe Photoshop CS6 13.0.1 or later.
