Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Acrobat/Reader. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information. A remote user can bypass operating system blacklist controls.

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

Memory corruption flaws may occur [CVE-2013-2718, CVE-2013-2719, CVE-2013-2720, CVE-2013-2721, CVE-2013-2722, CVE-2013-2723, CVE-2013-2725, CVE-2013-2726, CVE-2013-2731, CVE-2013-2732, CVE-2013-2734, CVE-2013-2735, CVE-2013-2736, CVE-2013-3337, CVE-2013-3338, CVE-2013-3339, CVE-2013-3340, CVE-2013-3341, CVE-2013-3346].

An integer underflow may occur [CVE-2013-2549].

A stack overflow may occur [CVE-2013-2724].

A buffer overflow may occur [CVE-2013-2730, CVE-2013-2733].

An integer overflow may occur [CVE-2013-2727, CVE-2013-2729].

A use-after-free memory error may allow a remote user to bypass sandbox protection [CVE-2013-2550].

A remote user may be able to obtain potentially sensitive information via a Javascript API [CVE-2013-2737]

A remote user may be able to bypass operating system blacklist controls [CVE-2013-3342].

Mateusz Jurczyk and Gynvael Coldwind of the Google Security Team, Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team, George Hotz (via HP's Zero Day Initiative), Felipe Andres Manzano (via the iSIGHT Partners GVP Program, Tobias Klein (via HP's Zero Day Initiative), and Soroush Dalili (via HP's Zero Day Initiative) 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.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can bypass blacklist security controls.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

3. Description:

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

This update fixes multiple security flaws in Adobe Reader. These flaws are
detailed in the Adobe Security bulletin APSB13-15, 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-2013-2549, CVE-2013-2718, CVE-2013-2719, CVE-2013-2720,
CVE-2013-2721, CVE-2013-2722, CVE-2013-2723, CVE-2013-2724, CVE-2013-2725,
CVE-2013-2726, CVE-2013-2727, CVE-2013-2729, CVE-2013-2730, CVE-2013-2731,
CVE-2013-2732, CVE-2013-2733, CVE-2013-2734, CVE-2013-2735, CVE-2013-2736,
CVE-2013-3337, CVE-2013-3338, CVE-2013-3339, CVE-2013-3340, CVE-2013-3341)

This update also fixes an information leak flaw in Adobe Reader.
(CVE-2013-2737)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 9.5.5, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.

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
