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 18.104.22.16852 with engine version 22.214.171.124, and in the Windows version 126.96.36.199 with engine version 4.4.4. There is no update yet.
