F-PROT Antivirus for Linux ELF File Scanning Denial of Service Vulnerability

F-PROT Antivirus for Linux is a virus scanning application for the Linux operating system.

The application is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to handle malformed files.

Successfully exploits will crash the affected application, resulting in a denial-of-service condition. Given the nature of this issue, code execution may be possible, but this has not been confirmed.

F-PROT Antivirus for Linux 4.6.8 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
