Kaspersky Antivirus DEX File Format Parsing Memory Corruption. Dos exploit for windows platform

Fuzzing the DEX file format found a crash that loads a function pointer from an attacker controlled pointer, on Windows this results in a call to an unmapped address. This is obviously exploitable for remote, zero-interaction code execution as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM on any system with Kaspersky Antivirus. I've tested Windows, Linux, Mac and a product using the Kaspersky SDK (ZoneAlarm Pro), all were exploitable.

(5dc.990): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.
