DoS vulnerability in F-PROT
Manipulated ZIP archives cause F-PROT's virus scanner to misbehave. An error in the engine is reported to overload the CPU when certain archives are scanned, causing the system to become sluggish or even cease to respond. The error is said to occur in the Linux version 188.8.131.5252 with engine version 184.108.40.206, and in the Windows version 220.127.116.11 with engine version 4.4.4. There is no update yet.
