SuSE9 Security Update : acroread (YOU Patch Number 11433)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41117


The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.


The Adobe Acrobat Reader has been updated to version 7.0.9.

For SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 this version now includes its own GLIB2, ATK, PANGO and GTK2 libraries, since Acroread 7.0.x requires a minimum level of GTK2 2.4.

This update also includes following security fixes :

- A memory corruption problem was fixed in Adobe Acrobat Reader can potentially lead to code execution.

- 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-2007-0044)

- 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-2007-0045)

- 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(). (CVE-2007-0046)

- CVE-2007-0047 and CVE-2007-0048 affect only Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer.
