Adobe about-face: Photoshop, Illustrator patches will be free

Adobe has changed course and will now backport the fixes to existing software versions.

Facing widespread criticism for its decision to bundle critical security updates into paid upgrades for Photoshop and Illustrator, Adobe has changed course and will now backport the fixes to existing software versions.

The company's about-face was included in an update to the security bulletin:

We are in the process of resolving the vulnerabilities addressed in these Security Bulletins in Adobe Illustrator CS5.x, Adobe Photoshop CS5.x (12.x) and Adobe Flash Professional CS5.x, and will update the respective Security Bulletins once the patches are available.

The company did not provide a timeline for when the backported patches will be available.
