Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Adobe Reader: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200907-06)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 12, 2009
Bug(s): #267846, #273908
ID: 200907-06

Synopsis


Adobe Reader is vulnerable to remote code execution via crafted PDF files.


Background


Adobe Reader is a PDF reader released by Adobe.


Affected Packages

Package: app-text/acroread
Vulnerable: < 8.1.6
Unaffected: >= 8.1.6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Adobe Reader:
  • Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer
    overflow in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0198).
  • Mark Dowd of the IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force and
    Nicolas Joly of VUPEN Security reported multiple heap-based buffer
    overflows in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-0509, CVE-2009-0510,
    CVE-2009-0511, CVE-2009-0512, CVE-2009-0888, CVE-2009-0889)
  • Arr1val reported that multiple methods in the JavaScript API
    might lead to memory corruption when called with crafted arguments
    (CVE-2009-1492, CVE-2009-1493).

  • An anonymous researcher reported a stack-based buffer overflow related
    to U3D model files with a crafted extension block (CVE-2009-1855).

  • Jun Mao and Ryan Smith of iDefense Labs reported an integer overflow
    related to the FlateDecode filter, which triggers a heap-based buffer
    overflow (CVE-2009-1856).

  • Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team
    reported a memory corruption vulnerability related to TrueType fonts
    (CVE-2009-1857).

  • The Apple Product Security Team reported a memory corruption
    vulnerability in the JBIG2 filter (CVE-2009-1858).

  • Matthew Watchinski of Sourcefire VRT reported an unspecified memory
    corruption (CVE-2009-1859).

  • Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple heap-based buffer overflows when
    processing JPX (aka JPEG2000) stream that trigger heap memory
    corruption (CVE-2009-1861).

  • Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered
    (CVE-2009-2028).


Impact


A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/acroread-8.1.6"
