Synopsis :

The version of Adobe Acrobat installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Adobe Acrobat installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 11.0.15, 15.006.30121, or 15.010.20060. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A memory corruption issue exists due to the use of
uninitialized memory when handling annotation gestures.
A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted PDF
file, to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of
service or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-1007)

- A flaw exists related to searching and loading
dynamic-link library (DLL) files due to using a search
path that may contain directories which are not trusted
or under the user's control. An attacker can exploit
this, by injecting a malicious DLL into the path, to
gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-1008)

- An array indexing error exists due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can
exploit this, via a crafted PDF file, to corrupt memory,
resulting in a denial of service or the execution of
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1009)

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