Adobe Reader is a PDF reader released by Adobe.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Reader:
<li>Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer
overflow in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0198).
<li>Mark Dowd of the IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force and
Nicolas Joly of VUPEN Security reported multiple heap-based buffer
overflows in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0509, CVE-2009-0510,
CVE-2009-0511, CVE-2009-0512, CVE-2009-0888, CVE-2009-0889)
<li>Arr1val reported that multiple methods in the JavaScript API
might lead to memory corruption when called with crafted arguments
(CVE-2009-1492, CVE-2009-1493).
An anonymous researcher reported a stack-based buffer overflow related
to U3D model files with a crafted extension block (CVE-2009-1855).
Jun Mao and Ryan Smith of iDefense Labs reported an integer overflow
related to the FlateDecode filter, which triggers a heap-based buffer
overflow (CVE-2009-1856).
Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team
reported a memory corruption vulnerability related to TrueType fonts
The Apple Product Security Team reported a memory corruption
vulnerability in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-1858).
Matthew Watchinski of Sourcefire VRT reported an unspecified memory
corruption (CVE-2009-1859).
Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple heap-based buffer overflows when
processing JPX (aka JPEG2000) stream that trigger heap memory
corruption (CVE-2009-1861).
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/acroread-8.1.6&quot;</code>
