Description

Adobe Reader and Acrobat 7.x before 7.1.4, 8.x before 8.1.7, and 9.x before 9.2 suffers from a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability. This can potentially allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file that triggers memory corruption.

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.
