Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader might result in the execution
of arbitrary code or other attacks.

Background
==========

Adobe Reader (formerly Adobe Acrobat Reader) is a closed-source PDF
reader.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-text/acroread       < 9.3.4                          >= 9.3.4

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Adobe Reader. For further
information please consult the CVE entries and the Adobe Security
Bulletins referenced below.

Impact
======

A remote attacker might entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application, or bypass intended
sandbox restrictions, make cross-domain requests, inject arbitrary web
script or HTML, or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/acroread-9.3.4"
