3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in NOD32 Anti-Virus,
which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise
a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error in handling ARJ archives
containing compressed files with overly long filename. This can be
exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow when a specially
crafted ARJ archive is scanned.

Successful exploitation may allow arbitrary code execution, but
requires that archive scanning is enabled.
