Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

An anonymous researcher (via TippingPoint), Jun Mao and Ryan Smith of iDefense Labs, Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team, the Apple Product Security Team, Matthew Watchinski of Sourcefire VRT, Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research, Mark Dowd of the IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force, Will Dormann of CERT, and Nicolas Joly of VUPEN Security reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create a file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (7.1.3, 8.1.6, 9.1.2).

The vendor's advisory is available at:
