Version Summary:Red Hat has released a security advisory and updated software to address the vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader and Acrobat security updates for May 14, 2013.
 

Description
 
Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader and Acrobat versions 9.5.4 and prior, 10.1.6 and prior, and 11.0.02 and prior, could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system with the privileges of a targeted user.

The vulnerabilities are due to unspecified memory corruption flaws, buffer overflows, and use-after-free errors. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerabilities by convincing a targeted user to open a malicious PDF document within an affected application. The processing of a malicious PDF document could trigger an error condition that an attacker could leverage to execute arbitrary code on a the targeted system with the privileges of the targeted user. If that user holds elevated privileges, the attacker could completely compromise the targeted system.

Adobe has confirmed the vulnerabilities in a security bulletin and released software updates.
