A security researcher has casually revealed 15 vulnerabilities which impact on Microsoft Windows and Adobe Reader.

 

On Tuesday, Google Project Zero hacker Mateusz Jurczyk outlined a total of 15 critical vulnerabilities discovered within font management systems.

 

The research, also presented at the REcon security conference in Montreal in a talk called "One font vulnerability to rule them all: A story of cross-software ownage, shared codebases and advanced exploitation," (.PDF), reveals a set of nasty remote code execution and privilege escalation flaws which can be exploited through Adobe Reader or the Windows Kernel.

 

Jurczyk discovered a number of low to critical-severity security flaws, but the worst two, CVE-2015-3052 and CVE-2015-0093, which exist in both 32-bit and 64-bit systems, are found within the Adobe Type Manager Font Driver. (more...)

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.. I'm not sure how often, or how much, I can participate but my days of 8-12 hours a day on the forums is long gone. I'll try to visit when I can and I hope when I do visit I can offer something of value.

 

Thanks people/friends,

Steve
