Your statement is a bit unclear to me. The systems
you performed the
tests on, were those fully patched versions of NAV
2002? So, does this 
vulnerability still work on fully patched systems or
did Symantec patch 
it? Do you know if they ever released an advisory
about it or did they 
patch it silently.


well... as i released the bug to  1 year ago, i am
sure they silently patched the bug.... I tested the
issue with nav 2003 but it didn't worked..... IT DOES
WORK ON NAV 2002. nav manual scan doesn't crash while preforming a manual
scan on fully patched NAV 2002! I posted the issue to some discussion's
fourms 1 year ago, 100% people out there reported it did worked.

you can get the advisory on...



I even got a email responce from david ahemad [da () securityfocus com ] about
a year ago... they are testing the issue AND THEY WANT SOME TIME before it
goes to the bugtraq list! but then....... i got NO RESPONCE FROM HIM!

[proof of... 1 year ago i released the issue...]



here is the email from symantec...

Hi Bipin,

Do you mind if we verify this before it goes out over
the list?
