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 handling of the File.rename method when processing JSX files. When opening a JSX file, the user interface fails to warn the user of unsafe actions. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of the current process.
