3. Description:

 

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document

Format (PDF).

 

This update fixes two security flaws in Adobe Reader. These flaws are

detailed in the Adobe Security bulletin APSB13-07, listed in the References

section. A specially-crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or,

potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when

opened. (CVE-2013-0640, CVE-2013-0641)

 

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain

Adobe Reader version 9.5.4, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All

running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take

effect.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.
