The remote antivirus service is vulnerable to a file scan evasion
According to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote
host is earlier than 0.95.2. Such versions are reportedly affected by
multiple scan evasion vulnerabilities :
- An attacker could bypass antivirus detection by
embedding malicious code in a specially crafted 'CAB',
'RAR', or 'ZIP' archive.
- Due to an issue in 'libclamav/mbox.c', an attacker can
bypass antivirus detection by sending a UTF-16 encoded
- Due to an issue in 'libclamav/readdb.c', certain
signatures that should be rejected are able to bypass
