Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description :

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2007:011 (acroread).


The Adobe Acrobat Reader has been updated to version 7.0.9.

This update also includes following security fixes:

CVE-2006-5857: A memory corruption problem was fixed in Adobe Acrobat
Reader can potentially lead to code execution.

CVE-2007-0044: Universal Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) problems
were fixed in the Acrobat Reader plugin which could be
exploited by remote attackers to conduct CSRF attacks
using any site that is providing PDFs.

CVE-2007-0045: Cross site scripting problems in the Acrobat Reader
plugin were fixed, which could be exploited by remote
attackers to conduct XSS attacks against any site that
is providing PDFs.

CVE-2007-0046: A double free problem in the Acrobat Reader plugin was fixed
which could be used by remote attackers to potentially execute
arbitrary code.
Note that all platforms using Adobe Reader currently have
counter measures against such attack where it will just
cause a controlled abort().

Please note that the Acrobat Reader on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
9 is affected too, but can not be updated currently due to GTK+
2.4 requirements. We are trying to find a solution.

Acrobat Reader on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 and SUSE Linux
Desktop 1 is no longer supported and should be deinstalled.
