Embed Malicious code within a PDF document
Posted on 2006-07-04
I work for a security company who currently works with a lot of pdf documents. I have heard that it is possible to embed malicious code within a pdf document. I really would like more information on this topic and a sample pdf document that launches some type of reverse shell or command prompt. If you could possibly tell me about a program that you could edit pdf code through and tell me how it works or show me where to find a sample document to download that would be great. I would like a sample so I can attempt to send it through our systems and see if our systems will block the file.
