In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Description: The expired subscription pop-up could be bypassed by opening the .pdf document at the expired affected Adobe Photoshop.
Step to Reproduce:
- Preparing the .pdf file;
- Open those .pdf file with the expired Photoshop CC 2019 version 20.0.0;
- Close the Expired pop-up information;
- Continue to edit the .pdf;
- And now your Photoshop could be used without the expired limitation anymore. For a test, just open the image file that you would like to edit (just kindly see the video for the clear PoC).
- So basically, the .pdf file was a “trap” to tricks the “expired pop-up”;
- The bug has been fixed by Adobe in the version 20.0.2;
- I just reproduced this issue at OS X (Mojave). Have no idea if this tricks would works at another OS or not.
