Marsu has discovered a vulnerability in Adobe Photoshop, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the BMP.8BI Photoshop Format Plugin when handling Bitmap files (e.g. .BMP, .DIB, .RLE). This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted Bitmap file.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in Adobe Photoshop CS2 and reportedly affects Adobe Photoshop CS3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Apply updates (please see the vendor's advisory for details).
