Vulnerability Assessment Details

Adobe PDF Plug-In < 8.0

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks version of nppdf32.dll

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The browser test on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple
issues.

Description :

The version of Adobe PDF Plug-In installed on the remote host is
earlier than 7.0.9 / 8.0 and reportedly fails to properly sanitize
input to the 'FDF', 'XML', or 'XFDF' fields used by its 'Open
Parameters' feature. By tricking a user to access a specially-crafted
link and depending on the browser with which the test is used, a
remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to conduct
arbitrary code execution, denial of service, cross-site script
forgery, or cross-site scripting attacks against a user on the remote
host.
