Regarding f-prot.so included with F-Prot Linux for Enterprise Business, version 3.13

A slight fault in a new program included with F-Prot Linux for Enterprise Business has been found and repaired.

The program, f-prot.so, is a preloadable shared object for Linux. It scans all files accessed using the F-Prot memory resident daemon. Enabling realtime protection of network file services such as samba.

A fault was found in the formatting of filenames in HTTP requests sent to the F-Prot memory resident daemon. Whitespaces in filenames were not converted to hexadecimal code, and could therefore cause the daemon to return an error.

This effectively meant that filenames containing whitespaces were not scanned by the f-prot.so program. This fault has been repaired with the latest version of F-Prot Linux for Enterprise Business.

We recommend that users of the f-prot.so program download the latest software packages from FRISK Software International.
