Are you going to charge everyone for getting the latest flash player as well?
You all are aware that the price is rather cheap when using the products for their intended professional use? Photoshop isn't developed for the average person to just mess about with. It's made for professional graphic artists. And when used properly the money is made back in no time from doing jobs. Even freelancers can easily make the money back. Furthermore with the program they're starting / or have started I believe it'll only be $50 a month or so to 'rent to own' it which honestly isn't all that bad.
And the issue is only with loading ( specific ) files ( to narrow it down more, specific file types ) from unknown sources. So unless you're busy downloading files from sketchy sites to load into them, then it isn't going to effect you. And in a professional settings, you likely aren't going to be downloading .tif's ( the file format for photoshops exploit ) from 4chan and loading them into your work machine. I'm sorry, but if you are that dumb and do get infected, it's totally deserved. Even for the normal user who pirated it just to play around with photoshop, this likely isn't going to bother them.
