High Nessus Plugin ID 19926


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:047 (acroread).

A buffer overflow was found in the core application plug-in for the Adobe Reader, that allows attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.

This is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2005-2470.

Note that for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 and SUSE Linux Desktop 1 Acrobat Reader support was already discontinued by an earlier announcement.
