    This discussion is in a recent posting in CNET forums concerning the buffer-overflow problem of many AV programs.

    According to Secunia Database at
    http://secunia.com/product/1066/

    Currently, 0 out of 2 Secunia advisories, are marked as "Unpatched" in the Secunia database.

    This applies to the Windows version of NOD32.

    "0 out of 2...are marked as unpatched", this means they are patched, I think...

    Do you have a link to the CNET discussion?

    I take it NOD32 was just fine.

    Thanks for the link! :)

    dgc49 was pointing out that mrobinson52's "Not according to Secunia" post is a misinterpretation. "0 out of 2 unpatched" means that Eset has patched the flaws. Scroll down the Secunia page, and you will see the pie graph that shows 100% of the vulnerabilities (2 of 2) have been fixed by "vendor patches".

    In other words, Secunia says that an updated version of NOD32 is clear... as far as we know! ;)
