3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in various HAURI
anti-virus products, which can be exploited by malicious people to
compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the ACE
archive decompression library vrAZace.dll when extracting an archive.
This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow when
scanning a malicious ACE archive containing a compressed file with
a filename longer than 272 characters.

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

The vulnerability is related to:
