Hello using PSI 2.0 beta version 1.9.0.4001 , i got today the message that my photoshop 7.x is considred as End of Life , and the solution brought me to the page of Photoshop CSS , that i imagine is the new and secured version of photoshop ...

my question is , can i keep my photoshop in my version without updating it or changing it to photoshop CSS , i presume that i should buy the new version , and my old version gives me what i need for my utilisation .

i don't know if i 'm really clear there , but my point is , if my old photoshop version is suiting me , maybe i can just indicates to PSI to not scan it and find it vulnerable maybe !!!

can u advise me how to do it , i didn't find it . and what about the real risks on the net using and end of life version of this specific program ? would a door be open if i'm using my old photoshop version connected to internet , and some people could access to my computer trough it ?

or the risks are really minimals or are they're massives ????

thx for ur answers and advices .

Affected By 0 Secunia advisories
0 Vulnerabilities

Monitor Product Receive alerts for this product

Unpatched 0% (0 of 0 Secunia advisories)

Most Critical Unpatched
There are no unpatched Secunia advisories affecting this product, when all vendor patches are applied..

End of Life means that the vendor has ceased support for the product....a term I don't see in the above advisory.
At a time when Adobe products receive plague proportion malware attention in general, your question regarding the keeping of such seems most foolish.
Having said that if you are sure you perhaps have the program in a safe location, you could create an ignore rule for.
In psi 2.0 Beta...you should go to :-
Configurations/Settings/Ignore Rule....and complete the details.
I havn't found very much else on the forum concerning....previous threads....perhaps there's an alternative ?
Hope the foregoing is of some help/info.....regards,

hello Mogs ! thx for the answer !!! :)

If i understood well , the secunia advisory is good about Photoshop 7x , and they're not aware yet that is EoL , i presume they will make the change in the future when they 'll have time i guess ... (?)



but i didn't understand very well the paragraph about Adobe and the plagues of threats , and the place where it is installed on my computer ...

Adobe products ( and this program Photoshop 7x ) are a serious threat who could be used by others to access my computer if they're not placed on a safe place on the computer ??? is that it ???

my photoshop 7x program is installed on my C disk , in my program files , like most of my programs ...

should I install it on another place ???

sorry for my misunderstanding

Hello.
From my reading of the Advisory as it is; it is saying that if all patches are applied/up to date; it isn't vulnerable. Tho' Secunia has advised via psi, that the vendor has ceased support for the product, maybe 'tis safe enough for a while ? I'm trying to discern the situation myself. Will the status in the advisory change shortly ?
With regard to my statement re :- Adobe products and seemingly plagues of attack....they seem to be magnets for malware.
I was merely intimating....without knowing how Photoshop works exactly....that you should take as much care as possible...and that possibly there's better practice in the use of. Maybe someone else on the forum will have further advice. Whatever, I don't think it is a situation you should choose to ignore.
