Adobe Reader < 8.1.1 Crafted PDF File Arbitrary Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 27584
The PDF file viewer on the remote Windows host allows execution of arbitrary code.
The installation of Adobe Reader on the remote host allows execution of arbitrary code by means of a specially crafted PDF file with a malicious 'mailto:' link. Note that the issue only exists on systems running Windows XP or Windows 2003 with Internet Explorer 7.0.
Upgrade to Adobe Reader 8.1.1 or later or disable 'mailto' support as described in the vendor advisory above.
