Description

Certain versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader do not properly parse "/Registry" and "/Ordering" specifiers in the font section of PDF documents. As a result, a malicious attacker can construct a special PDF file which executes arbitrary code when opened by the user.

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.
