F-Secure RPM Parsing Integer Overflow RCE (FSC-2008-3)

High Nessus Plugin ID 35088


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


The version of F-Secure Anti-Virus installed on the remote host is affected by an integer overflow condition. Provided F-Secure is configured to scan inside compressed archives, an attacker can exploit this issue, via a specially crafted RPM file, to execute arbitrary code.

Note that, in a typical configuration, on-access scanning does not scan inside compressed archives.
