Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a code
execution vulnerability

Description :

The version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server / BlackBerry Unite! on the
remote host reportedly contains a vulnerability in the PDF distiller
component of the BlackBerry Attachment Service. A remote attacker may
be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the
affected host subject to the privileges under which the application
runs, generally 'Administrator', by sending an email message with a
specially crafted PDF file and having that opened for viewing on a
BlackBerry smartphone.

Service Pack 6 (4.1.6), apply an appropriate interim security software
update, or prevent the Attachment Service from processing PDF files.

If using BlackBerry Unite!, either upgrade to 1.0 Service Pack 1
(1.0.1) bundle 36 or later or prevent the Attachment Service from
processing PDF files.
