Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): Acrobat Extension for Chrome 15.1.0.3
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Adobe Acrobat Extension for Chrome. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The Adobe Acrobat extension for Chrome does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will run in the security context of an arbitrary site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Tavis Ormandy of Google Security and Gary O'Leary-Steele of Sec 1 Ltd reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with an arbitrary site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
