Adobe Changes Course; Will Patch Security Bugs In CS5 And CS5.5
Responding to PR and public backlash, Adobe has changed course and now states that the outgoing CS5 suite will indeed receive security updates that were scheduled to only apply to CS6. The company's blog post now states: "We are in the process of resolving these vulnerabilities in Adobe Photoshop CS5.x, and will update this Security Bulletin once the patch is available."
Illustrator and Flash will get updated in time as well, with eight "critical" bugs to be addressed ASAP. Keep on fighting for those rights, folks. Maybe Lightroom 3 will get an update as well.
