SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2007:011 (acroread).
The Adobe Acrobat Reader has been updated to version 7.0.9.
This update also includes following security fixes:
CVE-2006-5857: A memory corruption problem was fixed in Adobe Acrobat Reader can potentially lead to code execution.
CVE-2007-0044: Universal Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) problems were fixed in the Acrobat Reader plugin which could be exploited by remote attackers to conduct CSRF attacks using any site that is providing PDFs.
CVE-2007-0045: Cross site scripting problems in the Acrobat Reader plugin were fixed, which could be exploited by remote attackers to conduct XSS attacks against any site that is providing PDFs.
CVE-2007-0046: A double free problem in the Acrobat Reader plugin was fixed which could be used by remote attackers to potentially execute arbitrary code.
Note that all platforms using Adobe Reader currently have counter measures against such attack where it will just cause a controlled abort().
Please note that the Acrobat Reader on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 is affected too, but can not be updated currently due to GTK+ 2.4 requirements. We are trying to find a solution.
Acrobat Reader on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 and SUSE Linux Desktop 1 is no longer supported and should be deinstalled.
