Adobe Products Insecure Default File Permissions

Affected Software:

Adobe Illustrator CS2
Adobe Photoshop CS2


A security issue has been reported in some Adobe products, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions or gain escalated privileges.


The security issue is caused due to insecure default file permissions being set on the installed files and folders. This allows any non-privileged users on the system to remove the files or replace them with malicious binaries.


Solution:  Apply AdobeSecurityPatcher
