3. Description:

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document
Format (PDF).

This update fixes multiple security flaws in Adobe Reader. These flaws are
detailed in the Adobe Security bulletin APSB13-15, listed in the References
section. A specially-crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe Reader when
opened. (CVE-2013-2549, CVE-2013-2718, CVE-2013-2719, CVE-2013-2720,
CVE-2013-2721, CVE-2013-2722, CVE-2013-2723, CVE-2013-2724, CVE-2013-2725,
CVE-2013-2726, CVE-2013-2727, CVE-2013-2729, CVE-2013-2730, CVE-2013-2731,
CVE-2013-2732, CVE-2013-2733, CVE-2013-2734, CVE-2013-2735, CVE-2013-2736,
CVE-2013-3337, CVE-2013-3338, CVE-2013-3339, CVE-2013-3340, CVE-2013-3341)

This update also fixes an information leak flaw in Adobe Reader.
(CVE-2013-2737)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 9.5.5, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258
