Low Nessus Plugin ID 18844
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionSecunia Research reports :
Secunia has discovered a security issue in Adobe Reader for Linux, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of sensitive information.
The problem is caused due to temporary files being created with permissions based on a user's umask in the '/tmp' folder under certain circumstances when documents are opened.
Successful exploitation allows an unprivileged user to read arbitrary users' documents.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
