Description

Certain versions of Adobe Acrobat do not properly distill input files into PDF format. As a result, a malicious file can be constructed which overflows a buffer and executes arbitrary code under the privileges of the Acrobat 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.
