Foxit Reader 2.x < 2.3 Build 3902 / 3.x < 3.0 Build 1506 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 35807
SynopsisA PDF viewer installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Foxit Reader installed on the remote Windows host is 2.x prior to 2.3 Build 3902 or 3.x prior to 3.0 Build 1506. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An uninitialized memory dereference flaw exists due to improper handling of a JBIG2 symbol dictionary segment with zero new symbols. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted PDF file, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-0191)
- A flaw exists due to a failure to require user authorization before preforming dangerous actions defined in a PDF file. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted PDF file, to execute arbitrary commands. (CVE-2009-0836)
- A stack-based buffer overflow condition exists due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file having a long relative or absolute path in a filename argument in an action. Note that this issue only affects version 3.x. (CVE-2009-0837)
SolutionUpgrade to Foxit Reader version 2.3 Build 3902 / 3.0 Build 1506 or later.
