uuencoded document. This issue poses the threat of remote execution, since
Acrobat Reader may be the default handler for PDF files. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-0631
to this issue.

file with a specially crafted file name which could lead to arbitrary
command execution on a victim's machine. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-0630 to this issue.

All users of Acrobat Reader are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which is not vulnerable to these issues.
