Description

The version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server on the remote host reportedly contains several unspecified vulnerabilities in the PDF distiller component of the BlackBerry Attachment Service. By sending a specially crafted PDF file and having it opened on a Blackberry smartphone, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the system that runs the BlackBerry Attachment Service.
