Date:  Feb 23 2011
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 9.4.1 and prior versions; 10.0
Description:   Multiple 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 local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2010-4091, CVE-2011-0562, CVE-2011-0563, CVE-2011-0565, CVE-2011-0566, CVE-2011-0567, CVE-2011-0568 (on Mac OS X only), CVE-2011-0570, CVE-2011-0585, CVE-2011-0586, CVE-2011-0588, CVE-2011-0589, CVE-2011-0590, CVE-2011-0591, CVE-2011-0592, CVE-2011-0593, CVE-2011-0594, CVE-2011-0595, CVE-2011-0596, CVE-2011-0598, CVE-2011-0599, CVE-2011-0600, CVE-2011-0602, CVE-2011-0603, CVE-2011-0605, CVE-2011-0606]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A local user on Windows-based systems can exploit a file permissions flaw to gain elevated privileges [CVE-2011-0564].

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2011-0587, CVE-2011-0604].

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.

A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

3. Description:

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document
Format (PDF).

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB11-03, listed
in the References section.

A specially-crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when
opened. (CVE-2011-0562, CVE-2011-0563, CVE-2011-0565, CVE-2011-0566,
CVE-2011-0567, CVE-2011-0585, CVE-2011-0586, CVE-2011-0589, CVE-2011-0590,
CVE-2011-0591, CVE-2011-0592, CVE-2011-0593, CVE-2011-0594, CVE-2011-0595,
CVE-2011-0596, CVE-2011-0598, CVE-2011-0599, CVE-2011-0600, CVE-2011-0602,
CVE-2011-0603, CVE-2011-0606)

Multiple security flaws were found in Adobe reader. A specially-crafted PDF
file could cause cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against the user
running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2011-0587, CVE-2011-0604)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 9.4.2, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
