CVE-2008-3243 (
  Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the scanning engine before 4.4.4 in
  F-Prot Antivirus before allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service via (1) a crafted UPX-compressed file, which triggers an engine
  crash; (2) a crafted Microsoft Office file, which triggers an infinite loop;
  or (3) an ASPack-compressed file, which triggers an engine crash.

CVE-2008-3244 (
  The scanning engine before 4.4.4 in F-Prot Antivirus before allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (engine crash) via a CHM file
  with a large nb_dir value that triggers an out-of-bounds read.

*PING #2* 
Comment 4 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2009-04-02 15:36:45 UTC
versions bumped.  since there are no 6.0.2 versions for ppc and x86-fbsd, I guess I won't ask for them to be keyworded, hoping frisk will eventually update those as well.
Comment 5 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-17 09:00:06 UTC
This has been fixed with GLSA 200904-14. Since impact and versions are the same, no errata will be sent. glsa-200904-14.xml has been updated. Thanks.
