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


The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 10.1.3 or 9.5.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow condition exists that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code via a crafted True Type Font (TFF). (CVE-2012-0774)

- A memory corruption issue exists in JavaScript handling that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in the Adobe Reader installer that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-0776)

- A memory corruption issue exists in the JavaScript API that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-0777)

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


Upgrade to Adobe Reader version 10.1.3 / 9.5.1 or later.
