Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks version of AcroPDF ActiveX control
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by
arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities.
The remote host contains a version of the 'AcroPDF' ActiveX control
included with Adobe Reader and Acrobat.
The version of this ActiveX control on the remote host reportedly
exposes several methods that fail to handle malformed arguments. If
a possible hacker can trick a user on the affected host into visiting a
specially-crafted web page, he can leverage these issues to execute
arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's rights.
