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

High Nessus Plugin ID 23975


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.
