Issues extend beyond Flash vulnerabilities
Adobe has spotted yet more compatibility problems created in transitioning its software to Snow Leopard, according to the company's principal product manager, John Nack. In particular, Photoshop is currently said to crash when switching to the Menlo font; the only solution at present is to avoid using the font entirely. The editing software may also crash when using the Open and Save commands, and dragging images to the program's Dock icon may not open them, as intended.
Nack notes that the last two problems are not unique to Photoshop or Adobe programs in general, and are being fixed in cooperation with Apple. Reports have surfaced however that Snow Leopard actually downgrades Flash to v10.0.23.1, leaving it exposed to several known vulnerabilities. Users must upgrade to the latest version of the software, v10.0.32.18, on their own.
