3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia research has discovered some vulnerabilities in AhnLab V3
Antivirus, which can be exploited by malicious, local users
to gain escalated privileges, or by malicious people to compromise a 
vulnerable system.

1) The real-time scan driver, v3flt2k.sys, does not validate the
source of received "DeviceIoControl()" commands. This can be
exploited by non-administrative users to run explorer.exe with
SYSTEM privileges, or to disable the real-time scan engine, via 
specially crafted DeviceIoControl requests. 

2) A boundary error in the ACE archive decompression library can be
exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow when a malicious
ACE archive containing a compressed file with an overly long 
filename is scanned.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but
requires that compressed file scanning is enabled.

3) A directory traversal error in the archive decompression library
can be exploited to write files to arbitrary directories when a
malicious archive containing compressed files with directory
traversal sequences in their filenames is scanned.

Vulnerability #2 and #3 are related to:
SA14359

Update to version 6.0.0.457 via online update.
