Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader might allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code or conduct various other attacks.

Background
==========

Adobe Reader is a closed-source PDF reader.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-text/acroread            < 9.5.1                    >= 9.5.1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Adobe Reader, including an
integer overflow in TrueType Font handling (CVE-2012-0774) and multiple
unspecified errors which could cause memory corruption.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file, possibly resulting in  execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========
