Description

The version of Nuance PDF Reader installed on the remote host is prior to 8.1. As such, it is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in the 'PDFCore8.dll' when allocating memory for a font table directory during the handling of naming tables when handling TTF files.

An attacker could exploit this issue by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted document, resulting in arbitrary code execution.
