    Photoshop CS6 on OS X 10.8.5 requires publicly writable directories under /Library

    chongolcn2

      In order for Photoshop CS6 under OS X 10.8.5 to run under a standard user, certain direcories under /Library/Application Support/Adobe must be made publically writable.

       

      The following sub-direcrories are publically writbale under /Library/Application Support/Adobe:

       

      drwxrwxrwt   3 root  admin   102 Jan 15  2013 ./Adobe PCD/cache

      drwxrwxrwx   3 root  admin   102 Sep 23 21:55 ./Bridge CS6 Extensions/Workspaces

      drwxrwxrwx   2 root  admin    68 Sep 23 21:54 ./Extension Manager CS6

      drwxrwxrwx  71 root  wheel  2414 Sep 24 00:04 ./SLCache

      drwxrwxrwx   3 root  wheel   102 Sep 23 20:13 ./SLCache/SLConfigs

      drwxrwxrwx   3 root  wheel   102 Sep 23 20:16 ./SLCache/SLConfigs/V7{}PhotoshopLRCC-1.0-Mac-GM

      drwxrwxrwx  11 root  wheel   374 Sep 24 00:04 ./SLStore

      drwxrwxrwx   2 root  admin    68 Sep 23 18:11 ./SLStore_v1

       

      /Library directories that any user can write can enable to security exploits.

       

      Removing the public write permission on the above directories will cause Photoshop CS6 to fail to start.

       

      Please fix Photoshop so that it does NOT need publically writable directories in the /Library tree.
