The version of Adobe Acrobat on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Adobe Acrobat installed on the remote host is earlier than 9.1 / 8.1.4 / 7.1.1. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An integer buffer overflow can be triggered when processing a malformed JBIG2 image stream with the '/JBIG2Decode' filter. (CVE-2009-0658)

- A vulnerability in the 'getIcon()' JavaScript method of a Collab object could allow for remote code execution.

- Additional vulnerabilities involving handling of JBIG2 image streams could lead to remote code execution.
(CVE-2009-0193, CVE-2009-0928, CVE-2009-1061, CVE-2009-1062)

If an attacker can trick a user into opening a specially crafted PDF file, he can exploit these flaws to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Upgrade to Adobe Acrobat 9.1 / 8.1.4 / 7.1.1 or later.
