High Nessus Plugin ID 83473
SynopsisThe version of Adobe Reader on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote host is a version prior to 10.1.14 / 11.0.11. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A buffer overflow condition exists in CoolType.dll due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists in CoolType.dll due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker, via a specially crafted PDF file, can cause the application to crash and disclose memory contents.
- Multiple input validation, NULL pointer dereference, and use-after-free flaws exist that allow memory corruption, arbitrary code execution, and buffer overflow attacks.
