CVE Reference:   CVE-2011-0562, CVE-2011-0563, CVE-2011-0564, CVE-2011-0565, CVE-2011-0566, CVE-2011-0567, CVE-2011-0568, CVE-2011-0570, CVE-2011-0585, CVE-2011-0586, CVE-2011-0587, 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-2011-0604, CVE-2011-0605, CVE-2011-0606   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 8 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].

Mitja Kolsek of ACROS Security, Bing Liu and Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Tavis Ormandy and Billy Rios of the Google Security Team, Abdullah Ada via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, James Quirk of Los Alamos, New Mexico, Brett Gervasoni of Sense of Security, Joe Schatz of United States Senate, Office of the Sergeant at Arms, IT Security, Parvez Anwar, Greg MacManus of iSIGHT Partners Labs, CESG, Peter Vreugdenhil via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, Sebastian Apelt via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, el via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, Sean Larsson, iDefense Labs, Will Dormann of CERT, Marc Schoenefeld of Red Hat Security Response Team, and an anonymous reporter via TippingPoint'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 local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (10.0.1).
