Synopsis :

The version of Adobe Reader on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 10.1.4 or 9.5.2. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified stack-based buffer overflow condition
exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2012-2049)

- An unspecified buffer overflow condition exists that
allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2012-2050)

- Multiple unspecified memory corruption issues exist that
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2012-2051, CVE-2012-4147,
CVE-2012-4148, CVE-2012-4149, CVE-2012-4150,
CVE-2012-4151, CVE-2012-4152, CVE-2012-4153,
CVE-2012-4154, CVE-2012-4155, CVE-2012-4156,

CVE-2012-4160, CVE-2012-4161, CVE-2012-4162)

- An unspecified heap-based buffer overflow condition
exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2012-1525)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
