====================================================================== 
3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in AhnLab V3 
Antivirus, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise
a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the archive
decompression library when reading the filename of a compressed file 
from an ALZ, UUE or XXE archive. This can be exploited to cause a 
stack-based buffer overflow (ALZ), or a heap-based buffer overflow
(UUE/XXE), when a malicious ALZ/UUE/XXE archive is scanned.

Successful exploitation allows arbitrary code execution, but requires 
that compressed file scanning is enabled.

====================================================================== 
4) Solution 

AhnLab V3Pro 2004 (V3 VirusBlock 2005 international):
Update to version 6.0.0.488 via Smart Update.

AhnLab V3Net for Windows Server 6.0:
Update to version 6.0.0.488 via Smart Update.
