A buffer overflow in Adobe Acrobat/Acrobat Reader may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition
Adobe Acrobat is a suite of applications that allow users to manipulate PDF (Portable Document Format) files. A buffer within a core plug-in for Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader can be overwritten using a specially-crafted PDF document.
For more information refer to Adobe Security Advisory 321644.
If a remote attacker can persuade a user to access a specially crafted PDF file, that attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code or crash the Adobe Acrobat/Acrobat Reader process.
