1. Summary:

The acroread packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras
contain security flaws and should not be used.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

3. Description:

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document

Adobe Reader 8.1.7 is vulnerable to critical security flaws and should no
longer be used. A specially-crafted PDF file could cause Adobe Reader to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Adobe
Reader when opened. (CVE-2009-4324, CVE-2009-3953, CVE-2009-3954,
CVE-2009-3955, CVE-2009-3959, CVE-2009-3956)

Adobe have discontinued support for Adobe Reader 8 for Linux. Adobe Reader
9 for Linux is not compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. An
alternative PDF file viewer available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 is
xpdf.

This update removes the acroread packages due to their known security
vulnerabilities.
