Adobe Reader/Acrobat 0-day Clarification

By now, most people should hopefully be aware of the 0-day vulnerability currently being actively exploited in Adobe Reader/Acrobat. We initially heard rumours about this 0-day vulnerability on 16th February 2009 and began digging for something more concrete over the following days. Three days later, Adobe confirmed the existence of the 0-day vulnerability and Secunia issued an advisory. Later, a more in-depth analysis was provided to customers on our Secunia Binary Analysis Service. Disabling JavaScript does not prevent exploitation Over the last couple of days, we have seen many sources recommend users to disable support for JavaScript in Adobe Reader/Acrobat to prevent exploitation. While this does prevent many of the currently seen exploits from successfully executing arbitrary code (as they rely on JavaScript), it does not protect against the actual vulnerability. During our analysis, Secunia managed to create a reliable, fully working exploit (available for Secunia Binary Analysis customers), which does not use JavaScript and can therefore successfully compromise users, who may think they are safe because JavaScript support has been disabled. All users of Adobe Reader/Acrobat should therefore show extreme caution when deciding which PDF files to open regardless of whether they have disabled JavaScript support or not. Hopefully, Adobe will be issuing patches very soon.

Stay Secure,

Carsten Eiram,
Chief Security Specialist

It seems at the moment there is no cure or work around available for this exploit.
