Description

Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1.2 and earlier, and before 7.1.1, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a malformed PDF document, as demonstrated by 2008-HI2.pdf.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-acroread
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
