Vulnerability Discovered in McAfee AntiVirus

Researchers at Internet Security Systems (ISS) have discovered a flaw in Mcafee's antivirus software that could allow compromise of a system running that software. The flaw affects software using versions of McAfee's antivirus library prior to 4400. Exploitation of the flaw could be achieved by sending a specially crafted LHA file by email or through the download of such a file from a website, or the opening of such a file from a shared folder on a network. The malformed LHA file can cause a stack overflow, potentially providing access to the affected system.

McAfee products affected include the following:
