Description

Acrobat contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to load unauthorized plugins. The issue is triggered by the digital signature verification code, which only validates the header of a plugin file. It is possible that the flaw may allow an attacker to submit a modified plugin which will be executed as "reader-enabled" resulting in a loss of integrity.
