Unable to Use Grayscale Droplet Anymore

This action shortcut has been used by me and coworker for months, if not over a year now. It's now impossible to use on either of our computers. We've both tried the new versions of Photoshop, uninstalling & reinstalling, rebooting, recreating the action on different versions of Photoshop, and nothing works. We still get this error:

 

“CONVERT-TO-GRAYSCALE” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

 

I originally thought this was just an issue on my computer, but the fact that it's also happening to my coworker and another person who's laptop I borrowed to try it out means it's an issue with Adobe.

 

All of us are using macOS 13.0.1 - the only thing in common, though, between our computers.

 

Any ideas?

Can't help until you provide the action for download to something like Dropbox.

The Adobe supplied Action (Custom RGB to Grayscale) works on this end.

Happy to help. The more I deal with Ventura, the happier I am that I'm waiting to upgrade (unfortunately).

The MacOS security team must be having a field day.
