High Nessus Plugin ID 40800
SynopsisThe version of Adobe Acrobat on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Acrobat installed on the remote host is earlier than 8.1.2 or 7.1.0. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A design error vulnerability may allow an attacker to gain control of a user's printer.
- Multiple stack-based buffer overflows may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
- Insecure loading of 'Security Provider' libraries may allow for arbitrary code execution.
- Two vulnerabilities in the unpublicized function 'app.checkForUpdate()' exploited through a callback function could lead to arbitrary code execution in Adobe Acrobat 7.
