Adobe warns of Reader X security holes (4/11/12)

Quote:
Summary: Adobe ships patches for flaws that could cause the application to crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.

Adobe’s flagship PDF Reader/Acrobat software contains multiple security vulnerabilities that expose computer users to dangerous hacker attacks.

Adobe warned about the vulnerabilities in a security bulletin that contained patches for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux users.

Technical details on these vulnerabilities are not available. Here’s a brief glimpse from Adobe:
  • These updates resolve an integer overflow in the True Type Font (TTF) handling that could lead to code execution (CVE-2012-0774).
  • These updates resolve a memory corruption in the JavaScript handling that could lead to code execution (CVE-2012-0775).
  • These updates resolve a security bypass via the Adobe Reader installer that could lead to code execution (CVE-2012-0776).
  • These updates resolve a memory corruption in the JavaScript API that could lead to code execution (CVE-2012-0777) (Macintosh and Linux only).
The Adobe Reader X (10.1.3) and Adobe Acrobat X (10.1.3) updates also incorporate fixes for security holes in the ever-present Flash Player software.

I think that we might need a separate "Security" category just for Adobe products.
