A local Buffer Overflow was discovered in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0.

The overflow can be triggered within the "Buffer OverFlow Protection Properties" by creating a buffer overflow exclusion. Then fill each field

with data, and click ok, and apply

Process name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc

Module name: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA......etc


This will trigger various exceptions based on amount of data added to each field.

This will DoS the AV . McAfee AV will not run correctly again until Buffer Overflow Protection is disabled or the Buffer Overflow Exclusion is removed.
