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 () gleg net>

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. VENDOR RESPONSE

Update to F-Prot 4.6.7:
