Description


Two vulnerabilities have been reported in the CA Anti-Virus engine, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) A boundary error in vete.dll when processing CAB archives can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted CAB archive containing overly long filenames.

2) An input validation error when processing the "coffFiles" field in CAB archives can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow.
