Synopsis :

An antivirus application installed on the remote host is affected by a
remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper and/or F-Secure Anti-Virus
for Microsoft Exchange installed on the remote host is affected by a
buffer overflow condition in its web console. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service
condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

Note that the web console by default accepts connections only from the
local host; therefore, this issue can be exploited remotely only if
the web console has been specifically configured to accept connections
remotely.
