Description

Certain versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader are vulnerable to buffer overflow that is triggered when parsing corrupt ETD files. As a result, an attacker can cause the local system to execute arbitrary code under the privileges of the Adobe process.

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.
