Description

The version of Adobe Acrobat installed on the remote host is a version equal to or prior to 9.5.2. It is, therefore, affected by an input validation error related to the Help page that can allow cross-site scripting attacks.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application
