A security flaw has been discovered in the latest version of Adobe Systems' Photoshop Creative Suite.

A security flaw has been discovered in the latest version of Adobe Systems' Photoshop Creative Suite.

The vulnerability is in the portable network graphics plug-in for the program, as well as for other versions of the software that run on Windows.

The portable network graphics (PNG) plug-in vulnerabilities were discovered in Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 3 (CS3), Photoshop CS2 and Adobe Photoshop Elements (Editor) version 5.0 for Windows.

These flaws were highlighted in a report by security research firm Secunia that identified the set of critical vulnerabilities in Adobe's software.

Secunia said it had yet to detect any malicious use of the code.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the PNG.8BI Photoshop format plug-in when handling PNG files. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PNG file.
