NOD32 for UNIX long pathname buffer overflow
|nod32-pathname-bo (11282)||High Risk|
NOD32 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By creating a file with a pathname of more than 500 characters, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with root privileges, once NOD32 scans the file.
Upgrade to the latest version of NOD32 (1.359 or later), available from the Eset Web site. See References.
