I believe for the time being, the full details should
only be reported to AV softwares. This issue had a
detailed discussion on my Winrar advisory,    nine months

Latest [unconfirmed] report from some users suggest,
Panda antivirus is also vulnerable to such attacks.
[even for MAC users]

well there was ways exploiting the AV software on wild
but... AV companies ignored? the issue.
