Adobe Acrobat/Reader Multiple Flaws Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code, Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information, and Bypass Same-Origin Restrictions and Let Local Users Gain Elevated Privileges
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1031322
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1031322
CVE Reference:   CVE-2014-8445, CVE-2014-8446, CVE-2014-8447, CVE-2014-8448, CVE-2014-8449, CVE-2014-8451, CVE-2014-8452, CVE-2014-8453, CVE-2014-9150, CVE-2014-9165   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 9 2014
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system information, Modification of user information, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 10.1.12 and prior 10.x; 11.0.09 and prior 11.x
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat. 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 obtain potentially sensitive information. A remote user can bypass same-origin policy.

A remote user can create a specially crafted 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.

Several use-after-free memory errors may occur [CVE-2014-8454, CVE-2014-8455, CVE-2014-9165].

Several heap overflows may occur [CVE-2014-8457, CVE-2014-8460, CVE-2014-9159].

An integer overflow may occur [CVE-2014-8449].

Several memory corruption errors may occur [CVE-2014-8445, CVE-2014-8446, CVE-2014-8447, CVE-2014-8456, CVE-2014-8458, CVE-2014-8459, CVE-2014-8461, CVE-2014-9158].

A local user can exploit a time-of-check time-of-use (TOCTOU) race condition to overwrite arbitrary files on the target system [CVE-2014-9150].

These updates resolve a vulnerability in the handling of XML external entities that could lead to information disclosure (CVE-2014-8452).

A remote user can exploit flaws in a Javascript API to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2014-8448, CVE-2014-8451].

A remote user can bypass same-origin policy [CVE-2014-8453].

Alex Infuhr of Cure53.de, Ashfaq Ansari of Payatu Technologies, Corbin Souffrant, Armin Buescher, and Dan Caselden of FireEye, Jack Tang of Trend Micro, James Forshaw of Google Project Zero, lokihardt@asrt, Mateusz Jurczyk of Google Project Zero, Gynvael Coldwind of Google Security Team, Pedro Ribeiro of Agile Information Security, and Wei Lei and Wu Hongjun of Nanyang Technological University 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 local user can write to arbitrary files and gain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can bypass same-origin policy.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (10.1.13, 11.0.10).
