Does anyone know what Adobe is doing with this problem? How is it possible that CS5 is end of life and they are no longer supporting it? They only recently released CS6 and it's $200 to upgrade.

The initial Security Bulletin from Adobe implied that the only way to resolve the vulnerabilities would be to pay for an upgrade to CS6. Subsequently they announced that they were working on patches for CS5. This may have been related to the outcry at the time.

Was this reply relevant?
