Description

The JavaScript for Acrobat API in Adobe Reader and Acrobat 7.x before 7.1.4, 8.x before 8.1.7, and 9.x before 9.2 does not properly implement the Privileged Context or Safe Path restrictions for unspecified JavaScript methods. This can potentially allow remote attackers to create arbitrary files, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via the cPath parameter in a crafted PDF file.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
