Title: F-PROT Antivirus: Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities (GLSA 200904-14)
Date: April 14, 2009
Updated: April 17, 2009
Bug(s): #232665, #253497
Multiple errors in F-PROT Antivirus may lead to a Denial of Service.
F-PROT Antivirus is a multi-platform virus scanner for workstations and mail servers.
Vulnerable: < 6.0.2
Unaffected: >= 6.0.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
The following vulnerabilities were found:
- Multiple errors when processing UPX, ASPack or Microsoft Office files (CVE-2008-3243).
- Infinite Sergio Alvarez of n.runs AG reported an invalid memory access when processing a CHM file with a large nb_dir value (CVE-2008-3244).
- Jonathan Brossard from iViZ Techno Solutions reported that F-PROT Antivirus does not correctly process ELF binaries with corrupted headers (CVE-2008-5747).
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to scan a specially crafted file, leading to a crash or infinite loop.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All F-PROT Antivirus users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/f-prot-6.0.2"
