F-Prot Anti-Virus Scanning Engine Bypass Vulnerability

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:02 pm

A vulnerability was reported in F-Prot Antivirus. A remote user can send malicious content that will bypass the scanning engine.

The F-prot scanning engine does not properly decompress ZIP files that have a version header value greater then 15. As a result, content within the affected ZIP files will not be scanned and will be determined to be free of malicious content.
