Description

Certain versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader do not properly parse Javascript code embedded in PDF files. As a result, an attacker can craft a malicious PDF document that executes arbitrary code under the privileges of the user. Note that this vulnerability is actively exploited by the W32.Yourde virus.

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.
