SumatraPDF < 2.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 62390


The remote Windows host has a PDF reader installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of SumatraPDF installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 2.1. As such, it is potentially affected by multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PDF file, a remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.


Upgrade to SumatraPDF 2.1 or later.
