    so registered legit users are vulnerable to security flaws and warez users
    are not?
    wonder if they'll put that in their new marketing literature.

    Yes, at least in CS.
    I'm not surprised it happened, nor will it be the last security
    breach caused by Adobe.

    CS & CS2 bypass all Windows security and administration
    standards (e.g. the AdobeLM service starts itself, not only
    without admin approval or notification, but even when it's
    explicitly disabled), and also writes a disk signature to a
    reserved sector of your hard drive, potentially overwriting
    partition tables, boot sectors etc. and trashing the entire
    drive.
