PDF24 Creator 10.6.2 [Update]

PDF24 Creator

PDF24 PDF Creator installs a virtual printer driver that allows you to convert any printable document or image into PDF format. You can also import documents from your scanner, combine multiple documents into one and delete selected pages from existing PDF files. The program supports creation of secure, digitally signed documents, PDF quality settings, integrated preview, emailing, and more.

You can either drag'n drop documents onto the GUI or convert them from any other program by using the virtual printer driver - simply select the PDF24 printer instead of your regular paper printer.

PDF24 Creator 10.6.1 changelog:

  • PDF24 Creator 10.6.1 brings a security update that fixes a vulnerability, making it possible for an attacker to execute programs with elevated privileges. The issue was recently brought to our attention. We have investigated this issue and have made three changes to the program that solve the problem, making the software more secure. Companies are recommended to upgrade to PDF24 Creator 10.6.1.

Using Ghostscript 9.55

  • Ghostscript 9.55 fixes a security issue, making it possible for an attacker to execute programs with elevated privileges. This is not desirable, especially in a corporate context. Therefore, we now use this version so that this problem is eliminated.

Use of a better security descriptor for the user-printer-pipes

  • We now use a better security descriptor for the user printer pipes, so that only LocalSystem, administrators and the user itself have write access to them. The user printer pipes are responsible for accepting and forwarding print jobs from the PDF printer. This restriction also helps to increase security.

Start User-Printer-Pipe Server for LocalSystem User only if necessary

  • The corresponding server for the user printer pipes is no longer started for the Local System account if this is not absolutely necessary. This is only necessary if the AutoSaveAsService configuration option is used. This is rarely the case and therefore this server does not need to be started, which also helps to increase security.
