Vulnerability found in McAfee, Kaspersky and AVG anti-virus softwares

Three major anti-virus softwares have been shown to be vulnerable to a large coding vulnerability.

A vulnerability has been revealed in several major anti-virus products. The Israel-based cyber-security startup enSilo recently showed how AVG Internet Security 2015, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version 8.8 and Kaspersky Total Security 2015 were all vulnerable to the same flaw.

These giants of the enterprise antivirus software game were all subject to the same coding issue. The softwares would allocate memory for read and write, as well as execute permissions with an address that an attacker could easily predict and then proceed to inject code into the target system.
