ISS has shipped protection for a flaw X-Force has discovered in Symantec AntiVirus Library. The Symantec AntiVirus Library is widely relied upon to provide antivirus capabilities to desktop, server, and gateway systems.
Also, several large vendors and ISP's implement Symantec's AntiVirus Library in their products. By crafting a UPX file, an attacker is able to trigger a heap overflow within the process importing the Symantec AntiVirus Library.

this is from Bugtraq:

This is from Slashdot and consistent with what Symantec phone support
have told me:

"If you're running Corporate Edition, you won't be getting the patch via LiveUpdate. You need to call their tech support line with your serial number or contact/contract number, and they'll give you the information (FTP site and password) for obtaining the 9.0 MR3 update for SAV Corporate Edition. This updates the software to version 9.0.3.1000" --SethB
