Synopsis

The version of Adobe Reader on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 10.1.1, 9.4.6, or 8.3.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists that allows an attacker to bypass security restrictions, resulting in code execution. (CVE-2011-2431)

- Multiple buffer overflow conditions exists that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2432, CVE-2011-2435)

- Multiple heap overflow conditions exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2433, CVE-2011-2434, CVE-2011-2436, CVE-2011-2437)

- Multiple stack overflow conditions exist that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2438)

- An error exists related to memory leak issues that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2011-2439)

- A use-after-free error exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2440)

- Multiple errors exist in the CoolType.dll library that can allow stack overflow conditions, resulting in code execution. (CVE-2011-2441)

- A logic error exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2442)

- Multiple vulnerabilities exist, as noted in APSB11-21, that can allow an attacker to take control of the affected system or cause the application to crash.
(CVE-2011-2130, CVE-2011-2134, CVE-2011-2135, CVE-2011-2136, CVE-2011-2137, CVE-2011-2138, CVE-2011-2139, CVE-2011-2140, CVE-2011-2414, CVE-2011-2415, CVE-2011-2416, CVE-2011-2417, CVE-2011-2425, CVE-2011-2424)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Reader version 10.1.1 / 9.4.6 / 8.3.1 or later.
