New Way to Spread Malware

Security expert has demonstrated a proof of concept to inject malicious code into PDF file.

CNET reports that it has been shown that without the need for javascript it is possible to execute malicious code using PDF files that just require a user to agree to a dialog box. This dialog box is also disguisable and could allow the writer of the malicious code to trick the user into accepting the dialog box to run the code.

“Jeremy Conway, product manager at NitroSecurity, created a proof of concept for an attack in which malicious code is injected into a file on a computer as part of an incremental update, but which could be used to inject malicious code into any or all PDF files on a computer.”

Details of the exploit can be found here.
