1. Impact

   Multiple security vulnerabilities in the Adobe Reader may allow remote
   unprivileged users to execute arbitrary code. This includes a
   cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability that may allow a remote
   unprivileged user to inject arbitrary JavaScript into a browser
   session.

   Note: Adobe Reader is the free viewing companion to Adobe Acrobat.
   Adobe Reader allows you to view, navigate, and print Portable Document
   Format (PDF) files.

   These issues have been described in the following documents:
     * APSB07-01 at:
       http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb07-01.html

     * CVE-2006-5857 at:
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5857
     * CVE-2007-0045 at:
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0045
     * CVE-2007-0046 at:
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0046

2. Contributing Factors

   This issue can occur in the following releases:

   SPARC Platform
     * Solaris 10 without patch 121104-02

   Note 1: Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 are not affected by this issue.
   Solaris 10 x86 platform is also not affected.

   Note 2: All versions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat up to and including
   version 7.0.8 are affected by these issues. Solaris 10 ships Acrobat
   Reader 7.0.

   To determine the version of Adobe Reader installed on the system the
   following command can be run:
    $ /usr/bin/acroread -version
    7.0.1


3. Symptoms

   There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the described
   issues have been exploited. 

4. Relief/Workaround

   To work around the described issues, do not load PDF files from
   untrusted sources.

   To work around the cross site scripting vulnerability, disable
   JavaScript in the browser application. This can done in Mozilla as
   follows:
    1. Open the Preferences dialog from the Edit menu
    2. Select the Advanced tree
    3. Select the Scripts & Plug-ins leaf
    4. Uncheck the Navigator check box
    5. Click the OK button

5. Resolution

   This issue is addressed in the following release:

   SPARC Platform
     * Solaris 10 with patch 121104-02 or later
