RETIRED: Adobe Acrobat and Reader 'util.printf()' Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Adobe Acrobat and Reader are prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized buffer.

Exploiting this issue may allow attackers to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary machine code in the context of users running the affected application. Failed exploits will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

The issue affects Adobe Acrobat and Reader versions 8.1.2; other versions may also be vulnerable.

This BID is being retired as a duplicate of BID 30035 (Adobe Reader 'util.print()' JavaScript Function Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability)
