The security specialist Thierry Zoller has made several reports on errors in virus scanners from BitDefender, avast, ESET and Fortinet. According to Zoller, all have problems in dealing with corrupt archive files, making it possible for infected files to be smuggled past the scanners. Zoller says this is a particular problem for gateways.
BitDefender confirmed the error existed in many of its products and released a patch for it last week, which has been distributed over its automatic update system. ESET also acknowledged the error and have released updates through their automatic update system. Zoller says that only Avast and Fortinet have not reacted to his alerts, noting neither have replied to his attempts to responsibly disclose the issue to them.
* BitDefender - Generic bypass/evasion CAB, advisory from Thierry Zoller.
* avast! - Generic evasion (Limited details), advisory from Thierry Zoller.
* Nod32 (ESET) - Generic Evasion (Limited details), advisory from Thierry Zoller.
* Fortinet - Evasion / Bypass (Limited details), advisory from Thierry Zoller.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
