US-CERT has released information on two critical patches for F-Secure and Trend Micro security software. As one of our readers, Roseman put it, time to keep your "keep-you-safe" software safe!
Today, Trend Micro released patches affecting Office Scan versions 7.3 and 8.0. The patches address a stack-based buffer overflow via HTTP request to server CGI modules. You can get further information about the respective patches here:
Yesterday, F-Secure released Security Bulletin FSC-2008-3 which addresses a RPM parsing vulnerability in which specially-made compressed file archives cancause an integer overflow. This would apply if your program scans compressed files. Read more about it here.
