Three Security Vulnerabilities Fixed In New Foxit Reader Release

9 Mar 2009 | | No Comment

Foxit Software, sellers of the soon-to-be released Foxit eSlick, has announced the immediate release of a new build of their popular PDF viewer, Foxit Reader. The new build addresses three security vulnerabilities that were reported to the company late last month. 

Foxit has fixed three major vulnerabilities below which would cause the application to crash and could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system. Foxit took these issues seriously and our Technical Team resolved the relevant security issues efficiently within a couple days, and now Foxit Reader 3.0 is even more stable than before. 

The vulnerabilities fixed include:

  • Fixed the issue of stack-based buffer overflow.
  • Fixed the issue of security authorization bypass.
  • Fixed the issue of JBIG2 Symbol Dictionary Processing
