   SA Document Body
   Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in the Adobe Reader may lead to Execution of 
   Arbitrary Code

   1. Impact
   Multiple security vulnerabilities in the Adobe Reader may allow remote
   unprivileged users to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
   the local user.  These vulnerabilities may include validation check
   errors within the Adobe Reader's JavaScript handling, a heap-based
   buffer overflow in the Perl-Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE)
   library, and an untrusted search path error.
   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 are described in the following documents:

   CVE-2007-4768 at
   http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-4768

   2. Contributing Factors
   These issues can occur in the following release:
   SPARC Platform
     * Solaris 10 without patch 121136-02 (Adobe Reader Plugin) and patch
       121104-03 (Adobe Reader)


   Notes:
    1. Solaris 8, Solaris 9, Solaris 10 on the x86 platform and
       OpenSolaris do not ship Adobe Reader and therefore are not
       affected by this issue.
    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 a system, the
   following command can be run:

      $ /usr/bin/acroread -version
      7.0.1

   3. Symptoms
   There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate these issues
   have been exploited to execute arbitrary code.

   4. Workaround
   To avoid the described issues, do not load PDF files from untrusted
   sources.
   To work around the issues described in CVE-2008-0667, CVE-2007-5659,
   CVE-2007-5663, and CVE-2008-2042, JavaScript can be disabled 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

   This can be done in Firefox as follows:
    1. Open the 'Preferences' dialog from the Edit menu
    2. Select the 'Content' tab
    3. Uncheck the 'Enable JavaScript' check box
    4. Click the Close button

   5. Resolution
   These issues are addressed in the following release:
   SPARC Platform
     * Solaris 10 with patch 121136-02 (Adobe Reader Plugin) and patch
       121104-03 (Adobe Reader)
