Adobe Reader <= 10.1.1 / 9.4.6 U3D Memory Corruption (APSA11-04) (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The version of Adobe Reader on the remote Mac OS X host is affected
by a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
earlier or equal to 10.1.1 / 9.4.6 and is affected by a memory
corruption vulnerability related to the 'Universal 3D' (U3D) file
format.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into viewing
a maliciously crafted PDF file, causing application crashes and
potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.

Note that the Adobe Reader X user-specific option to use 'Protected
Mode' prevents an exploit of this kind from executing and that Nessus
cannot test for this configuration option.

Solution :

At the time of this writing there is no vendor-supplied patch. If
the installed product is Reader X, then the user-specific option to
use 'Protected Mode' should be enabled.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
