Adobe has released a security patch updater for Photoshop CS5.1 (Photoshop CS5.5), Photoshop CS5, against threats from malware in, GIF format images.
The malware threat to Photoshop is from malicious files which can crash Photoshop. The Photoshop security vulnerability updater is available from Adobe for free download.
Adobe is listing this Photoshop updater as a Standard Multiplugin Update.
NOTICE: You must first make sure that you have the latest version of Photoshop CS5.1 installed before applying this security update. Instructions for Mac, Windows 32 and Windows 64 are slightly different (no surprise!)
With all updates, backup, and beware. Update at your own risk, etc. etc. As my grandmother the hacker says, “Don’t download; be happy.” Good luck!
