<description>
<p>

infinite loop, and other unspecified vulnerabilities.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
Among other weaker impacts, a remote attacker could send an e-mail
containing a malicious file that would trigger the buffer overflow
vulnerability and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running F-Prot, which may be the root user.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
