A local Buffer Overflow was discovered in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0. The overflow can be triggered within the "Buffer OverFlow Protection Properties" by creating a buffer overflow exclusion. Then fill each field with data, and click ok, and apply Process name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc Module name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc API name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc This will trigger various exceptions based on amount of data added to each field. This will DoS the AV . McAfee AV will not run correctly again until Buffer Overflow Protection is disabled or the Buffer Overflow Exclusion is removed.
