The McAfee VirusScan progream contains a buffer overflow vulnerability. If exploited, this vulnerability may allow an attacker to arbitrary execute code.
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise includes an anti-virus, firewall, and host-based intrusion protection system.
The on-demand virus scanner component of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise contains a heap buffer overflow vulnerability. This vulnerability occurs because the scanner fails to properly process files with long file names that contain multi-byte characters.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges or create a denial-of-service condition.
McAfee has released VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i patch 12 to address this issue. See McAfee Security Bulletin 612750 for instructions on how to install this update directly or through McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator.
