Vendor:
-------
Adobe Systems Inc. (http://www.adobe.com)


Product web page:

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-elements.html


Affected version:
-----------------
8.0 and 7.0 (20080916r.508356)


Summary:
--------
Adobe Photoshop Elements - the No.1 consumer photo editing software that
helps you turn everyday memories into sensational photos you'll cherish
forever. Easily edit photos and make photo creations using automated
options, share photos with your social network, and view photos virtually

Description:
------------
Photoshop Elements 8 suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability when
dealing with .ABR (brushes) and .GRD (gradients) format files. The
application fails to sanitize the user input resulting in a memory
corruption, overwriting several memory registers which can aid the
atacker to gain the power of executing arbitrary code on the affected
system or denial of service scenario.
