Once again the importance of updating regularly is clear.

André Jerleke has reported a vulnerability in various Symantec AntiVirus products, which can be exploited by malware to bypass certain scanning functionality.
There's a list of the products available on the site where I found the info --> SITE

The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the Symantec Antivirus component when processing encoded or archived content. This can be exploited to crash the decomposer component when parsing a specially crafted RAR file
So whatch out when downloading those RaR-files

Offcourse updates are allready available :
Updates are available via LiveUpdate and from the Symantec Support site.
Link to original advisory Link also found on mentioned website.

I thought this might be of interest seeming alot of people use Symantec products.
