A vulnerability has been identified in Foxit Reader, which could be exploited by attackers to potentially compromise a vulnerable system. This issue is caused by a memory corruption error when processing Compact Font Format (CFF) data within a PDF document, which could be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PDF document. This is the same vulnerability that is currently being exploited to jailbreak the iPhone 4 OS. WARNING: This is an early release module. This is not the final version of this module. It is a pre-released version in order to deliver a module as quickly as possible to our customers that may be useful in some situations.
