Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Classic Track) Multiple Vulnerabilities-apsb17-36 (Windows)

Published: 2018-03-06 06:53:24
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
This host is installed with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Classic Track) and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws exist due to, - Two access of uninitialized point vulnerabilities that could result in remote could execution, - Six use after free vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Five buffer access with incorrect length value vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Six buffer over-read vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - A buffer overflow vulnerability that could result in remote code execution. - A heap overflow vulnerability that could result in remote code execution. - Two improper validation of array index vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Multiple out-of-bounds read vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Four out-of-bounds write vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Two security bypass vulnerabilities that could result in drive-by-downloads. - A security bypass vulnerability that could result in information disclosure. - A security bypass vulnerability that could result in remote code execution. - A stack exhaustion vulnerability that could result in excessive resource consumption. - Three type confusion vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - Six untrusted pointer dereference vulnerabilities that could result in remote code execution. - For more details, refer the reference links mentioned.

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks may cause a denial-of-service condition. Also attackers will be able to gain access to potentially sensitive information, get excessive resource consumption and get unintentional download of malicious software.

Affected Versions:
Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Classic Track) 2015.006.30355 and earlier versions on Windows.

Recommendations:
Upgrade to Adobe Acrobat DC (Classic Track) version 2015.006.30392 or later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Windows Registry

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
