Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: F-PROT Antivirus: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200612-12)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 12, 2006
Bug(s): #157612
ID: 200612-12

Synopsis


F-Prot Antivirus contains a buffer overflow and other unspecified
vulnerabilities, possibly allowing the remote execution of arbitrary code.


Background


F-Prot Antivirus is a FRISK Software antivirus program that can used
with procmail.


Affected Packages

Package: app-antivirus/f-prot
Vulnerable: < 4.6.7
Unaffected: >= 4.6.7
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


F-Prot Antivirus version 4.6.7 fixes a heap-based buffer overflow, an
infinite loop, and other unspecified vulnerabilities.


Impact


Among other weaker impacts, a remote attacker could send an e-mail
containing a malicious file that would trigger the buffer overflow
vulnerability and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running F-Prot, which may be the root user.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All F-Prot users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/f-prot-4.6.7"
