Free Adobe Acrobat 0-Day


Playing with much smaller (0x9000) or much larger would result in crashes in different areas, but in general you would control within multiples of four where you write. If you were to add to this a quick heap spray with some javascript, I don't doubt that you could write a rather reliable exploit across multiple versions of Acrobat Reader for XP, and if one were really inclined (or bored), for linux or OS X also! Yes, it crashes on all three, in versions 8 and 9. So to all of you security pros who were looking forward to a nice quiet weekend, I can't fix it, but hopefully this will make the fire drill a little less long and arduous. Have a good one!Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention. If you happen to open an explorer window, or a browser window, or anything at all that even has the ICON of the pdf file, you're owned.
