Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200901-09 (Adobe Reader: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

An unspecified vulnerability can be triggered by a malformed PDF     document, as demonstrated by 2008-HI2.pdf (CVE-2008-2549).
Peter Vreugdenhil, Dyon Balding, Will Dormann, Damian Frizza, and Greg     MacManus reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the util.printf     JavaScript function that incorrectly handles the format string argument     (CVE-2008-2992).
Greg MacManus of iDefense Labs reported an array index error that can     be leveraged for an out-of-bounds write, related to parsing of Type 1     fonts (CVE-2008-4812).
Javier Vicente Vallejo and Peter Vregdenhil, via Zero Day Initiative,     reported multiple unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities     (CVE-2008-4813).
Thomas Garnier of SkyRecon Systems reported an unspecified     vulnerability in a JavaScript method, related to an 'input validation     issue' (CVE-2008-4814).
Josh Bressers of Red Hat reported an untrusted search path     vulnerability (CVE-2008-4815).
Peter Vreugdenhil reported through iDefense that the Download Manager     can trigger a heap corruption via calls to the AcroJS function     (CVE-2008-4817).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF     document, and local attackers could entice a user to run acroread from     an untrusted working directory. Both might result in the execution of     arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application,     or a Denial of Service.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
