This module exploits a vulnerability on Adobe Reader X Sandbox. The vulnerability is due to a sandbox rule allowing a Low Integrity AcroRd32.exe process to write register values which can be used to trigger a buffer overflow on the AdobeCollabSync component, allowing to achieve Medium Integrity Level privileges from a Low Integrity AcroRd32.exe process. This module has been tested successfully on Adobe Reader X 10.1.4 over Windows 7 SP1.
