Description

Updated acroread packages that fix various security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras, 4 Extras, and 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document Format (PDF).

An input validation flaw was discovered in a JavaScript engine used by Acrobat Reader. A malicious PDF file could cause Acrobat Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Acrobat Reader. (CVE-2008-2641)

An insecure temporary file usage issue was discovered in the Acrobat Reader 'acroread' startup script. A local attacker could potentially overwrite arbitrary files that were writable by the user running Acrobat Reader, if the victim ran 'acroread' with certain command line arguments. (CVE-2008-0883)

All acroread users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, that contain Acrobat Reader version 8.1.2 Security Update 1, and are not vulnerable to these issues.
