This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A PDF viewer installed on the remote host is affected by a command
execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Foxit Reader installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 3.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary program
execution vulnerability related to certain '/Type /Action /S /Launch'
or '/Launch /Action' sequences. An attacker can exploit these, by
tricking a user into opening a crafted PDF file, to cause arbitrary
programs to be executed without user permission.
