Adobe Photoshop CC 17.x < 17.0.2 / 18.x < 18.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB17-12)

High Nessus Plugin ID 99369


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


The version of Adobe Photoshop CC installed on the remote Windows 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 multiple vulnerabilities :

- A memory corruption issue exists due to improper handling of PCX files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted PCX file, to execute arbitrary code.

- An unquoted search path flaw exists that allows an attacker to elevate privileges via a malicious executable in the root path. (CVE-2017-3005)


Upgrade to Adobe Photoshop CC version 17.0.2 (2015.5.2) / 18.1 (2017.1.0) or later.
