A vulnerability has been reported in Outpost Firewall Pro, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on the firewall.
Reportedly, it is possible to cause the firewall to crash silently by launching a new network application and choosing the option "Exit and stop service". This allows users to close the personal firewall on their systems without being authorised to do so.
The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.0.1817.1645. However, other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vulnerability has reportedly been fixed in version 2.5.
