Foxit PhantomPDF < 7.3.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A PDF toolkit installed on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version, the Foxit PhantomPDF application (formally
known as Phantom) installed on the remote Windows host is prior to
7.3.15. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified NULL pointer dereference flaw allows an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a crash. (VulnDB 161627)

- An unspecified flaw related to use of uninitialized memory allows
an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a crash.
(VulnDB 161628)

- An unspecified flaw in the Trust Manager causes the setting to
disable JavaScript actions to be ignored, thus allowing an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript
functions. (VulnDB 161629)

- An unspecified use-after-free error exists that allows an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to dereference already freed
memory, resulting in a denial of service or the execution of
arbitrary code. (VulnDB 161630)

- An unspecified out-of-bounds read flaw allows an unauthenticated,
remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information.
(VULNDB 161631)

- An unspecified out-of-bounds write flaw allows an unauthenticated,
remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (VULNDB 161631)
