Adobe PDF Plug-In < 8.0 / 7.0.9 / 6.0.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (APSB07-01)

high Nessus Plugin ID 23975
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The browser plugin on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple issues.


The version of Adobe PDF Plug-In installed on the remote host is earlier than 8.0 / 7.0.9 / 6.0.6 and reportedly fails to properly sanitize input to the 'FDF', 'XML', or 'XFDF' fields used by its 'Open Parameters' feature. By tricking a user into accessing a specially crafted link and depending on the browser with which the plugin is used, a remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to conduct arbitrary code execution, denial of service, cross-site script forgery, or cross-site scripting attacks against a user on the remote host.


Either disable displaying of PDF documents in web browsers or upgrade to Adobe Reader / Acrobat 8.0 / 7.0.9 / 6.0.6 or later.
