Summary: Updated acroread packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64 3. Problem description: The Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view and print documents in portable document format (PDF). A cross site scripting flaw was found in the way the Adobe Reader Plugin processes certain malformed URLs. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary javascript into the browser session which could possibly lead to a cross site scripting attack. (CVE-2007-0045) Two arbitrary code execution flaws were found in the way Adobe Reader processes malformed document files. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim opens a malicious PDF file. (CVE-2006-5857, CVE-2007-0046) All users of Acrobat Reader are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Acrobat Reader version 7.0.9 and are not vulnerable to these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run: rpm -Fvh [filenames] where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs. Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. 5.
