Vulnerability description

Adobe Reader/Acrobat is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Risk description

The flaws are due to: - a boundary error when parsing format strings containing a floating point specifier in the util.printf() Javascript function. - improper parsing of type 1 fonts. - bounds checking not being performed after allocating an area of memory. Successful exploitation allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code to cause a stack based overflow via a specially crafted PDF, and could also take complete control of the affected system and cause the application to crash.
