|Vulnerability Description||A memory corruption vulnerability has been reported in Adobe Reader and Acrobat. The vulnerability is due to an error in the way Adobe Reader and Acrobat parse PDF files containing a U3D image stream.

Successful exploitation will result in a denial of service condition, causing the application to become non-responsive, and may allow arbitrary code execution.|
