Description

Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.x before 9.3 and 8.x before 8.2 on Windows and Mac OS X allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted JPC_MS_RGN marker in the Jp2c stream of a JpxDecode encoded data stream. This triggers an integer sign extension that bypasses a sanity check, leading to 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.
