- Out-of-bounds read potentially leading to Information disclosure (CVE-2020-9705, CVE-2020-9706, CVE-2020-9707, CVE-2020-9710, CVE-2020-9716, CVE-2020-9717, CVE-2020-9718, CVE-2020-9719, CVE-2020-9720, CVE-2020-9721, CVE-2020-9723)

- Buffer error potentially leading to Arbitrary Code Execution (CVE-2020-9698, CVE-2020-9699, CVE-2020-9700, CVE-2020-9701, CVE-2020-9704)

- Use-after-free potentially leading to Arbitrary Code Execution (CVE-2020-9715, CVE-2020-9722)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Reader version 2015.006.30527 or 2017.011.30175 or 2020.001.30005 or 2020.012.20041 or later.
