Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader might allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or conduct various other attacks.
Adobe Reader is a closed-source PDF reader.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Reader, including an
integer overflow in TrueType Font handling (CVE-2012-0774) and multiple
unspecified errors which could cause memory corruption.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
