CVE Reference:   CVE-2010-0190, CVE-2010-0191, CVE-2010-0192, CVE-2010-0193, CVE-2010-0194, CVE-2010-0195, CVE-2010-0196, CVE-2010-0197, CVE-2010-0198, CVE-2010-0199, CVE-2010-0201, CVE-2010-0202, CVE-2010-0203, CVE-2010-0204, CVE-2010-1241   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 14 2010
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 9.3.1 and prior versions
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in 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 PDF file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow, memory corruption, prefix protocol handler, font handling, or cross-site scripting flaw and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

The following researchers reported these vulnerabilities:

Billy Rios and Microsoft Vulnerability Research (MSVR); Aki Helin of Oulu University Secure Programming Group; Haifei Li and Bing Liu of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs; An anonymous researcher via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative; Vulnerability Research Team, TELUS Security Labs; James Quirk of Los Alamos, New Mexico; Nicolas Joly of VUPEN Vulnerability Research Team; Felipe Andres Manzano via the iSIGHT Partners Global Vulnerability Partnership.

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:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:
