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
8.3.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A flaw exists in the app.launchURL() method allowing
a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-10951)

- A flaw in the saveAs() JavaScript function that allows
a context-dependent attacker to write to arbitrary
files and potentially execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-10952)

- A flaw that is triggered during the handling of the
createDataObject() function calls that may allow an
attacker to create arbitrary executable files on the
local system. (OSVDB164283)

- A flaw exists that is triggered during the handling of
xfa.host.gotoURL() function calls that may allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary commands. (OSVDB164284)
