PDF to execute an embedded executable without exploitin
Escape From PDF Didier Stevens
This is a special PDF hack: I managed to make a PoC PDF to execute an embedded executable without exploiting any vulnerability!
I use a launch action triggered by the opening of my PoC PDF. With Adobe Reader, the user gets a warning asking for approval to launch the action, but I can (partially) control the message displayed by the dialog. Foxit Reader displays no warning at all, the action gets executed without user interaction.
