Description

This module exploits a vulnerability in the U3D handling within versions 9.x through 9.4.6 and 10 through to 10.1.1 of Adobe Reader. The vulnerability is due to the use of uninitialized memory. Arbitrary code execution is achieved by embedding specially crafted U3D data into a PDF document. A heap spray via JavaScript is used in order to ensure that the memory used by the invalid pointer issue is controlled.
