The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200907-06
(Adobe Reader: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Reader:
Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer
overflow in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0198).
Mark Dowd of the IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force and
Nicolas Joly of VUPEN Security reported multiple heap-based buffer
overflows in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0509, CVE-2009-0510,
CVE-2009-0511, CVE-2009-0512, CVE-2009-0888, CVE-2009-0889)
might lead to memory corruption when called with crafted arguments
An anonymous researcher reported a stack-based buffer overflow related
to U3D model files with a crafted extension block (CVE-2009-1855).
Jun Mao and Ryan Smith of iDefense Labs reported an integer overflow
related to the FlateDecode filter, which triggers a heap-based buffer
Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team
reported a memory corruption vulnerability related to TrueType fonts
The Apple Product Security Team reported a memory corruption
vulnerability in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-1858).
Matthew Watchinski of Sourcefire VRT reported an unspecified memory
Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple heap-based buffer overflows when
processing JPX (aka JPEG2000) stream that trigger heap memory
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
