Foxit Reader < 4.2.0.0928 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 49780
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 prior to 4.2.0.0928. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A stack buffer overflow condition exists due to improper sanitization of the file title. An attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted PDF document containing an overly long title, to execute arbitrary code.
- An identity verification vulnerability exists related to how digital signatures in a document are validated. An attacker can exploit this to falsify documents.
SolutionUpgrade to Foxit Reader version 4.2.0.0928 or later.
