Summary: Nitro has released an update for Nitro Pro 10 and Nitro Pro 11, which addresses two potential security vulnerabilities. If exploited, an attacker could access a user’s desktop computer, install a malicious program, and then get the user to open a malicious PDF file using a version of Nitro Pro that contains the vulnerability. This could cause a memory corruption that could crash Nitro Pro, and potentially trigger the malicious program installed earlier.

Nitro Security Vulnerability Policy & Process:
Nitro’s commitment to the security of its products and services is a core value. Through proactive security design and testing, Nitro is proud to have required few historical security updates. Central to this philosophy is how Nitro manages Security Vulnerabilities, especially those reported to us by Third Party Security Researchers.
Nitro Security Vulnerability Process:
(1) Nitro will acknowledge and assess any vulnerabilities reported by a third party, typically within 7 days.
(2) When a vulnerability is confirmed, Nitro will conduct risk analysis using the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS v3) and determine the most appropriate response for our customers.
Critical security updates: Issues within the software that, if not addressed, pose a high risk and probability of unauthorized access, alteration or destruction of information on a user's computer or connected computers. Nitro will resolve critical security updates by providing a critical update to the current and previous released software version, or a major upgrade to the current release.
Non-critical Security updates: Issues within the software that, if not addressed, pose a low to moderate risk and probability of unauthorized access, alteration or destruction of information on a user's computer or connected computers. Nitro will resolve non-critical security updates by providing a minor update or major upgrade to the current release.
(3) Nitro will design, implement & test any security updates, and make them available to customers on supported software versions; typically within 90 days.
(4) Nitro will publicly disclose all critical security vulnerabilities, affected versions, and relevant details of any patched releases.
Nitro Personal (individual) users may access any Security updates on this page.
Nitro Business customers may contact their Nitro Account Manager for access to the security fix and deployment instructions.
Nitro Enterprise customers with a dedicated Customer Success Manager will receive notice and fix deployment instructions.
Reporting a vulnerability: All Nitro security vulnerabilities should be reported via email to the Nitro Security Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide concise steps to reproduce that are easily understood, and include a proof-of-concept file. Nitro does not provide rewards for bug or security vulnerability submissions.
