|CVSS SCORE||7.7, (AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)|
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Adobe Reader DC. 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 handling of the NextKey method. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of user-supplied data, which can result in an integer underflow before allocating a buffer. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of the current process.
Adobe has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
