3. Description:

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document
Format (PDF).

Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. 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-2009-2980,
CVE-2009-2983, CVE-2009-2985, CVE-2009-2986, CVE-2009-2990, CVE-2009-2991,
CVE-2009-2993, CVE-2009-2994, CVE-2009-2996, CVE-2009-2997, CVE-2009-2998,
CVE-2009-3458, CVE-2009-3459, CVE-2009-3462)

Multiple flaws were discovered in Adobe Reader. A specially-crafted PDF
file could cause Adobe Reader to crash when opened. (CVE-2009-2979,
CVE-2009-2988, CVE-2009-3431)

An input validation flaw was found in Adobe Reader. Opening a
specially-crafted PDF file could lead to a Trust Manager restrictions
bypass. (CVE-2009-2981)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 8.1.7, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.
