A vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Acrobat Reader, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in "UnixAppOpenFilePerform()" when Acrobat Reader is opening a document containing a "/Filespec" tag. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Acrobat Reader by tricking the user to open a specially crafted PDF document.
The vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Acrobat Reader for Unix version 5.0.9 and 5.0.10.
