Synopsis :

The version of Adobe Reader on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote host is a version
prior to 10.1.14 / 11.0.11. It is, therefore, affected by the
following vulnerabilities :

- A buffer overflow condition exists in CoolType.dll due
to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote
attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2014-9160)

- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists in CoolType.dll due
to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote
attacker, via a specially crafted PDF file, can cause
the application to crash and disclose memory contents.
(CVE-2014-9161).

- Multiple input validation, NULL pointer dereference, and
use-after-free flaws exist that allow memory corruption,
arbitrary code execution, and buffer overflow attacks.

- Multiple unspecified flaws in the JavaScript API allow
an attacker to bypass JavaScript API restrictions.
(CVE-2015-3060, CVE-2015-3061, CVE-2015-3062,
CVE-2015-3063, CVE-2015-3064, CVE-2015-3065,

- An XML external entity injection flaw exists that allows
information disclosure. (CVE-2014-8452)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
