Description Jean-François Brunette (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-16 10:31:57 UTC
A vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat, which
potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified boundary error in the core
application plug-in and can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow when a
specially crafted file is opened.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Install updated version.

Adobe Reader (Linux or Solaris):
Update to version 7.0.1.
