Kaspersky Anti-Virus UPX File Decompression DoS
High Nessus Plugin ID 24758
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that is prone to a denial of service issue.
DescriptionThe version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus installed on the remote host reportedly may enter an infinite loop when it attempts to process an executable with specially crafted compressed UPX data. A remote attacker may be able to exploit this issue to cause the affected host to consume all available CPU cycles, thereby denying service to users of the affected host.
