Adobe has warned that a flaw in its main graphics design applications could expose users to hacker attacks.

Adobe says that a security vulnerability in the Adobe License Management Service – used for product activation – “can lead to an unauthorised person gaining access to the user’s computer”.

Products affected by the flaw include Adobe Photoshop CS for Windows, Adobe Creative Suite 1.0 and Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5. Users of Photoshop CS2 or Adobe Creative Suite CS2 are not affected.

Adobe said it wasn’t aware of any malicious code circulating in the wild that exploits the vulnerability, so far. 

Adobe has issued a security patch to fix the problem.
