Description

Updated acroread packages that fix multiple 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).

Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A specially crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2009-2980, CVE-2009-2983, CVE-2009-2985, CVE-2009-2986, CVE-2009-2990, CVE-2009-2991, CVE-2009-2993, CVE-2009-2994, CVE-2009-2996, CVE-2009-2997, CVE-2009-2998, CVE-2009-3458, CVE-2009-3459, CVE-2009-3462)

Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A specially crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash when opened. (CVE-2009-2979, CVE-2009-2988, CVE-2009-3431)

An input validation flaw was found in Adobe Reader. Opening a specially crafted PDF file could lead to a Trust Manager restrictions bypass. (CVE-2009-2981)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain Adobe Reader version 8.1.7, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take effect.
