Vulnerability: NOD32 antivirus software for Unix

iDEFENSE Labs reports that Eset Software's NOD32 Antivirus System has a local exploitation of a buffer overflow in NOD32 for UNIX that could allow attackers to "gain super-user (root) privileges. The overflow occurs when NOD32 parses a path with a name of length greater than 500 characters (/tmp/AAAAA....AAA)."

NOD32 runs on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD. More info can be found here.
