CA20091008-01: Security Notice for CA Anti-Virus Engine Issued: October 8, 2009 CA's support is alerting customers to multiple security risks associated with CA Anti-Virus Engine. Vulnerabilities exist in the arclib component that can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service, or to cause heap corruption and potentially further compromise a system. CA has issued fixes to address the vulnerabilities. The first vulnerability, CVE-2009-3587, is due to improper handling of a specially crafted RAR archive file by the CA Anti-Virus engine arclib component. An attacker can create a malformed RAR archive file that results in heap corruption and allows the attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly further compromise the system. The second vulnerability, CVE-2009-3588, is due to improper handling of a specially crafted RAR archive file by the CA Anti-Virus engine arclib component. An attacker can create a malformed RAR archive file that results in stack corruption and allows the attacker to cause a denial of service.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the file "arclib.dll". By default, the file is located in the "C:\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\ScanEngine" directory (*). 2. Right click on the file and select Properties. 3. Select the Version tab. 4. If the file version is earlier than indicated below, the installation is vulnerable. File Name File Version arclib.dll 8.1.4.0 *For eTrust Intrusion Detection 2.0, the file is located in "Program Files\eTrust\Intrusion Detection\Common", and for eTrust Intrusion Detection 3.0 and 3.0 sp1, the file is located in "Program Files\CA\Intrusion Detection\Common". For CA Anti-Virus r8.1 on non-Windows platforms: Use the compver utility provided on the CD to determine the version of Arclib. If the version is less than 8.1.4.0, the installation is vulnerable. Example compver utility output: ------------------------------------------------ COMPONENT NAME VERSION ------------------------------------------------ eTrust Antivirus Arclib Archive Library 8.1.4.0 ... (followed by other components) For reference, the following are file names for arclib on non-Windows operating systems: Operating System File name Solaris libarclib.so Linux libarclib.so Mac OS X arclib.bundle Solution CA released arclib 8.1.4.0 on August 12 2009.
