Description

Certain versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader do not properly validate digital signatures on trusted plugins. As a result, a malicious plugin can appear as having a valid signature; this may cause the user to execute malicious code.

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.
