Summary

Buffer overflow in Adobe Reader and Acrobat 7.x before 7.1.4, 8.x before 8.1.7, and 9.x before 9.2 might allow attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors. Per: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb09-15.html Summary Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Reader 9.1.3 and Acrobat 9.1.3, Adobe Reader 8.1.6 and Acrobat 8.1.6 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX, and Adobe Reader 7.1.3 and Acrobat 7.1.3 for Windows and Macintosh. These vulnerabilities could cause the application to crash and could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. This update represents the second quarterly security update for Adobe Reader and Acrobat. Adobe recommends users of Adobe Reader 9.1.3 and Acrobat 9.1.3 and earlier versions update to Adobe Reader 9.2 and Acrobat 9.2. Adobe recommends users of Acrobat 8.1.6 and earlier versions update to Acrobat 8.1.7, and users of Acrobat 7.1.3 and earlier versions update to Acrobat 7.1.4. For Adobe Reader users who cannot update to Adobe Reader 9.2, Adobe has provided the Adobe Reader 8.1.7 and Adobe Reader 7.1.4 updates. Updates apply to all platforms: Windows, Macintosh and UNIX. Affected software versions Adobe Reader 9.1.3 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX Adobe Acrobat 9.1.3 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh Per: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb09-15.html Solution Adobe Reader Adobe Reader users on Windows can find the appropriate update here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=10&platform=Windows.

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.

    descriptionUpdated acroread packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document Format (PDF). Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A specially crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2009-2980, CVE-2009-2983, CVE-2009-2985, CVE-2009-2986, CVE-2009-2990, CVE-2009-2991, CVE-2009-2993, CVE-2009-2994, CVE-2009-2996, CVE-2009-2997, CVE-2009-2998, CVE-2009-3458, CVE-2009-3459, CVE-2009-3462) Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A specially crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash when opened. (CVE-2009-2979, CVE-2009-2988, CVE-2009-3431) An input validation flaw was found in Adobe Reader. Opening a specially crafted PDF file could lead to a Trust Manager restrictions bypass. (CVE-2009-2981) All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain Adobe Reader version 8.1.7, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take effect.
