Description

The version of Foxit Reader installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 8.3.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • A flaw exists in the app.launchURL() method allowing a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-10951)

  • A flaw in the saveAs() JavaScript function that allows a context-dependent attacker to write to arbitrary files and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-10952)

  • A flaw that is triggered during the handling of the createDataObject() function calls that may allow an attacker to create arbitrary executable files on the local system.

  • A flaw exists that is triggered during the handling of xfa.host.gotoURL() function calls that may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands.
