Adobe Reader (formerly Adobe Acrobat Reader) is a closed-source PDF
Vulnerable: < 8.1.2-r3
Unaffected: >= 8.1.2-r3

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Adobe Reader users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/acroread-8.1.2-r3"
