Pretty ironic, considering the AdobeLM service is bypassed in most hacked versions of CS I’ve come across so far.

Thanks.
I wonder why such an important update isn’t distributed via the Adobe Updater service.

so registered legit users are vulnerable to security flaws and warez users are not?
wonder if they’ll put that in their new marketing literature. "Buy our expensive software and get hacker intrusions free!"

Yes, at least in CS.

I’m not surprised it happened, nor will it be the last security breach caused by Adobe.

CS & CS2 bypass all Windows security and administration standards (e.g. the AdobeLM service starts itself, not only without admin approval or notification, but even when it’s explicitly disabled), and also writes a disk signature to a reserved sector of your hard drive, potentially overwriting partition tables, boot sectors etc. and trashing the entire drive.
