High Nessus Plugin ID 52161

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated acroread packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document Format (PDF).

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader. These vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB11-03, listed in the References section.

A specially crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2011-0562, CVE-2011-0563, CVE-2011-0565, CVE-2011-0566, CVE-2011-0567, CVE-2011-0585, CVE-2011-0586, CVE-2011-0589, CVE-2011-0590, CVE-2011-0591, CVE-2011-0592, CVE-2011-0593, CVE-2011-0594, CVE-2011-0595, CVE-2011-0596, CVE-2011-0598, CVE-2011-0599, CVE-2011-0600, CVE-2011-0602, CVE-2011-0603, CVE-2011-0606)

Multiple security flaws were found in Adobe reader. A specially crafted PDF file could cause cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against the user running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2011-0587, CVE-2011-0604)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain Adobe Reader version 9.4.2, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected acroread and / or acroread-plugin packages.
