Adobe Photoshop for Windows Vulnerability (CVE-2011-2443)

Adobe has just released a vulnerability advisory for Photoshop Elements for Windows  (http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa11-03.html). It is in older versions of the product (8 and earlier) and will not be fixed. The advice from Adobe is to upgrade to version 10, or to avoid opening .grd or .abr files.

It actually poses an interesting question, what should vendors be doing in cases where an issue is identified in a product that is no longer supported, especially products that are likely to be still in use by quite a number of people?  In this particular case I think they have probably gone the right path, sure the upgrade advice stings, but at least there is a work around available.
