Sophos Anti-Virus UPX and BZIP File Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 25933
The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of Sophos Anti-Virus installed on the remote host reportedly contains several problems involving the processing of 'UPX' and 'BZIP' files. If a remote attacker can cause a malicious file to be scanned by the affected application, these issues could be leveraged to crash the affected application, fill up space on the disk volume used for Engine temporary files, or possibly even execute arbitrary code.
Update to Sophos Anti-Virus engine version 2.48.0 or later.
