McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0 Buffer Overflow

A local Buffer Overflow was discovered in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0.
The overflow can be triggered within the "Buffer OverFlow Protection Properties" by creating a buffer overflow
exclusion. Then fill each field
with data, and click ok, and apply
Process name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc
Module name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc
API name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc
This will trigger various exceptions based on amount of data added to each field.
This will DoS the AV . McAfee AV will not run correctly again until Buffer Overflow Protection is disabled or the
Buffer Overflow Exclusion is removed.
