BMP, PNG and Targa file format plug-ins have been revised for both Mac and Windows versions of Photoshop CS2 and CS3.
Citing "critical vulnerabilities" in Photoshop CS2 and C3 that can be exploited by a malicious BMP, DIB, RLE or PNG file opened in the application, Adobe has released updated file format plug-ins to quash the threat.
The company recommended Photoshop CS2 and CS3 users on either Macintosh or Windows platforms update their installations by installing the three revised plug-ins for BMP, PNG and Targa file formats.
The revised plug-ins can be downloaded at no charge from Adobe's Security Bulletin page for "Photoshop CS2 and CS3 updates to address security vulnerabilities."
