Description

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

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

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

Several input validation flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A malicious PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader. (CVE-2008-2549, CVE-2008-2992, CVE-2008-4812, CVE-2008-4813, CVE-2008-4814, CVE-2008-4817)

The Adobe Reader binary had an insecure relative RPATH (runtime library search path) set in the ELF (Executable and Linking Format) header. A local attacker able to convince another user to run Adobe Reader in an attacker-controlled directory could run arbitrary code with the privileges of the victim. (CVE-2008-4815)

All acroread users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, that contain Adobe Reader version 8.1.3, and are not vulnerable to these issues.
