BitDefender Antivirus 2008 Hooked SSDT Denial of Service Vulnerability

BitDefender Antivirus 2008 is prone to a local denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data.

Exploiting this vulnerability allows local attackers to crash affected computers, denying service to legitimate users. Attackers might also be able to gain elevated privileges by executing arbitrary machine code in the context of the kernel, but this has not been confirmed.

BitDefender Antivirus 2008 Build 11.0.11 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
