Sophos antivirus vulnerabilities…



Sans has the story on a security vulnerability involving specifically crafted .cab files affecting a WIDE range of SOPHOS antivirus products (from desktop to server.)

The main result of the vulnerability is arbitrary code execution, which is a bad thing…. PureMessage and MailMonitor users may be more at risk because, of course, it requires scanning of .cab files to be enabled.


sophos has a KB article on the issue.

Of course, this is a remotely exploitable vulnerability and should be a very high priority. Updates for most affected products have been available since April 28th. (Some were patched on May 5th.)
