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

An integer overflow in True Type Font (TTF) handling can cause code execution [CVE-2012-0774].

A memory corruption error in JavaScript handling can cause code execution [CVE-2012-0775].

A security bypass via the Adobe Reader installer can cause code execution [CVE-2012-0776].

A memory corruption error in the JavaScript API can cause code execution on Mac OS X and Linux systems [CVE-2012-0777].

Peter Vreugdenhil, HP DVLabs, Soroush Dalili, Mitja Kolsek of ACROS Security, and James Quirk, Los Alamos, reported these vulnerabilities.
