Kaspersky Issues Fix for Security-Software Flaw


Security technology provider Kaspersky Lab today issued a product update designed to fix a serious flaw, discovered last week, in the company's antivirus software. Steve Orenberg, president of Moscow-based Kaspersky's U.S. operations, stressed that the flaw represented a theoretical threat and that there were no reports of exploitation by malware writers.

The flaw was first reported by researcher Alex Wheeler and is related to processing files of the CAB file format in current versions of Kaspersky Lab's antivirus products. It was found only in machines running Windows systems and was not applicable to other operating systems. NewsFactor Network - Enterprise Security - Kaspersky Issues Fix for Security-Software Flaw
