CVE-2004-0630

Status Candidate

Overview

The uudecoding feature in Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0.5 and 5.0.6 for Unix and Linux, and possibly other versions including those before 5.0.9, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via shell metacharacters ("`" or backtick) in the filename of the PDF file that is provided to the uudecode command.

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 2004-08-12.t

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 08.12.04: Remote exploitation of an input validation error in the uudecoding feature of Adobe Acrobat Reader (Unix) 5.0 allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. The Unix and Linux versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 automatically attempt to convert uuencoded documents back into their original format. The vulnerability specifically exists in the failure of Acrobat Reader to check for the backtick shell metacharacter in the filename before executing a command with a shell. This allows a maliciously constructed filename to execute arbitrary programs.
