Security researchers found that Adobe Acrobat is trying to block security software from having visibility into the PDF files it opens, creating a security risk for the users. Looking closer at what happens with the DLLs injected into Adobe processes, Minerva Labs found that Adobe checks if the bBlockDllInjection value under the registry key ‘SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\DLLInjection\’ is set to 1. Replying to BleepingComputer, Adobe confirmed that users have reported experiencing issue due to DLL components from some security products being incompatible with Adobe Acrobat’s usage of the CEF library. This setting may depend on the operating system or the Adobe Acrobat version installed, as well as other variables on the system. Adobe’s product is checking if components from 30 security products are loaded into its processes and likely blocks them, essentially denying them from monitoring for malicious activity. BleepingComputer has contacted Adobe with further questions to explain the conditions the DLL blocking occurs and will update the article once we have the information. In a post on Citrix forums on March 28, a user complaining about Sophos AV errors due to having an Adobe product installed said that the company “suggested to disable DLL-injection for Acrobat and Reader. The company added that it is currently working with these vendors to address the problem and “to ensure proper functionality with Acrobat's CEF sandbox design going forward.” Minerva Labs researchers argue that Adobe chose a solution that solves compatibility problems but introduces a real attack risk by preventing security software from protecting the system.
