    <p>
    Adobe Reader (formerly Adobe Acrobat Reader) is a closed-source PDF
    reader.
    </p>

  <description>
    <ul>
    <li>
    An unspecified vulnerability can be triggered by a malformed PDF
    document, as demonstrated by 2008-HI2.pdf (CVE-2008-2549).
    </li>
    <li>
    Peter Vreugdenhil, Dyon Balding, Will Dormann, Damian Frizza, and Greg
    MacManus reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the util.printf
    JavaScript function that incorrectly handles the format string argument
    (CVE-2008-2992).
    </li>
    <li>
    Greg MacManus of iDefense Labs reported an array index error that can
    be leveraged for an out-of-bounds write, related to parsing of Type 1
    fonts (CVE-2008-4812).
    </li>
    <li>
    Javier Vicente Vallejo and Peter Vregdenhil, via Zero Day Initiative,
    reported multiple unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities
    (CVE-2008-4813).
    </li>
    <li>
    Thomas Garnier of SkyRecon Systems reported an unspecified
    vulnerability in a JavaScript method, related to an "input validation
    issue" (CVE-2008-4814).
    </li>
    <li>
    Josh Bressers of Red Hat reported an untrusted search path
    vulnerability (CVE-2008-4815).
    </li>
    <li>
    Peter Vreugdenhil reported through iDefense that the Download Manager
    can trigger a heap corruption via calls to the AcroJS function
    (CVE-2008-4817).
    </li>
    </ul>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
    document, and local attackers could entice a user to run acroread from
    an untrusted working directory. Both might result in the execution of
    arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application,
    or a Denial of Service.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/acroread-8.1.3&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
