Vulnerability Details

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on 
vulnerable installations of Foxit Reader. User interaction is required to 
exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or 
open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the gotoURL method. The issue results from the
lack of proper validation of a user-supplied string before using it to execute
a system call. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code 
under the context of the current process.
