Description

Updated acroread packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view and print documents in portable document format (PDF). A cross site scripting flaw was found in the way the Adobe Reader Plugin processes certain malformed URLs. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary javascript into the browser session which could possibly lead to a cross site scripting attack. (CVE-2007-0045) Two arbitrary code execution flaws were found in the way Adobe Reader processes malformed document files. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim opens a malicious PDF file. (CVE-2006-5857, CVE-2007-0046) All users of Acrobat Reader are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Acrobat Reader version 7.0.9 and are not vulnerable to these issues.
