This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Sophos Anti-Virus.
The specific flaw exists in the parsing of SIT archives. When a long non-null terminated filename is processed by veex.dll, a heap overflow occurs due to the miscalculation of the string's actual size. Exploitation is possible leading to remote code execution running under the SYSTEM context.
Sophos has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
