Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Illustrator, which can potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to unspecified errors when processing AI files. These can potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted AI file.
These vulnerabilities are reported in Adobe Illustrator CS2 for Macintosh. Adobe Illustrator CS3 is reportedly not affected.
Solution: Do not open Illustrator files from untrusted sources.
