Zero Day Initiative Advisory 08-072

A vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Adobe Acrobat. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists in the handling of embedded Javascript code when opening a PDF. Adobe Acrobat has defined it's own set of Javascript functions that can be used in a PDF file. Due to improper parameter checking to one of these functions arbitrary memory can be over-written leading to remote code execution. If successfully exploited remote control of the target system can be gained with the credentials of the logged in user.

Core Security Technologies Advisory 2008.0526
Posted Nov 4, 2008
Authored by Core Security Technologies | Site coresecurity.com

Core Security Technologies Advisory - Adobe Reader suffers from a stack buffer overflow when parsing specially crafted (invalid) PDF files. The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when parsing format strings containing a floating point specifier in the "util.printf()" JavaScript function. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability requires that users open a maliciously crafted PDF file thereby allowing attackers to gain access to vulnerable systems and assume the privileges of a user running Acrobat Reader.
