Adobe Reader Multiple Vulnerabilities-01 Dec14 (MAC OS X)

Published: 2014-12-11 11:44:05
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
The host is installed with Adobe Reader and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

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

Technical Details:
Multiple Flaws are due to, - Multiple use-after-free errors can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. - Multiple unspecified errors can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow and subsequently execute arbitrary code. - A Race condition in the MoveFileEx call hook feature allows attackers to bypass a sandbox protection mechanism. - An error within the implementation of a Javascript API can be exploited to disclose certain information. - Multiple integer overflow errors can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow attackers to disclose potentially sensitive information, bypass certain security restrictions, execute arbitrary code and compromise a user's system.

Affected Versions:
Adobe Reader 10.x before 10.1.13 and Adobe Reader 11.x before 11.0.10 on MAC OS X.

Recommendations:
Upgrade to Adobe Reader version 10.1.13 or 11.0.10 or later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

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".
