Detection of recent WinRAR vulnerability (CVE-2018-20250)
It looks like, even with the latest definitions installed, Norton Security is not detecting specially crafted archives used to exploit the recent WinRAR vulnerability (CVE-2018-20250). I ran LiveUpdate, then downloaded and extracted the archive from CheckPoint's POC, and the exploit performed as expected, without so much as a peep from Norton.
Unfortunately, because WinRAR's response to this vulnerability was to drop support for the ACE format completely (see note 17), and I still have ACE format archives that I need to be able to access, upgrading to the new version of WinRAR is not an option for me.
I would like to be able to rely on Norton to mitigate this threat. What are the plans to issue an update to allow Norton Security to detect it?
