After various mails about publishing date
ignored, here the Public Disclosure.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
---+
Product: Avast antivirus 4.8.1351.0 (other versions could be affected)
Affected Component: aswMon2.sys 4.8.1351.0
Category: Local Denial of Service due to kernel memory corruption (BSOD)
(untested) Local Privilege Escalation

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------[Details]--------------->

Avast's aswMon2.sys Driver does not sanitize user supplied input IOCTL) and this lead to a kernel memory corruption that propagates
on the system with a BSOD and potential risk of Privilege Escalation.<br><br>
