VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/16851/

CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
AhnLab V3Net for Windows Server 6.x
http://secunia.com/product/5700/
AhnLab MyV3

http://secunia.com/product/5699/

DESCRIPTION:
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in AhnLab V3
Antivirus, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the archive
decompression library when reading the filename of a compressed file
from an ALZ, UUE or XXE archive. This can be exploited to cause a
stack-based buffer overflow (ALZ), or a heap-based buffer overflow
(UUE/XXE), when a malicious ALZ/UUE/XXE archive is scanned.

Successful exploitation allows arbitrary code execution, but requires
that compressed file scanning is enabled.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in the following products:
* AhnLab V3Pro 2004 (AhnLab V3 VirusBlock 2005 international) (Build
6.0.0.457)
* AhnLab V3Net for Windows Server 6.0 (Build 6.0.0.457)
* AhnLab MyV3 with AzMain.dll 1.3.11.15

Prior versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
AhnLab V3Pro 2004 (V3 VirusBlock 2005 international):
Update to version 6.0.0.488 via Smart Update.

AhnLab V3Net for Windows Server 6.0:
Update to version 6.0.0.488 via Smart Update.

AhnLab MyV3:
The vulnerability has reportedly been fixed in the vendor's Korean
MyV3 website.
