Description

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on affected installations of Adobe Photoshop. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the processing of the callothersubr command in PostScript. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of user-supplied data, which can result in write operations past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of the current process.
