Researcher Claims Online Anti-virus Scanners Buggy

UPDATED: Online scanners from Symantec, McAfee and Panda all contain
buffer overflows. One researcher claims an attacker could execute
arbitrary code, another just that they could crash the browser. Panda
reports their software has been fixed and Symantec and McAfee confirm
the browser crash.
