The remote antivirus service is affected by multiple denial of service
According to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote
host is earlier than 0.96.1. Such versions are reportedly affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :
- An error exists within the 'cli_pdf()' function in
'libclamav/pdf.c' when processing certain PDF files.
- An error exists within the 'parseicon()' function in
'libclamav/pe_icons.c' when processing PE icons. This
can be exploited to trigger an out-of-bounds access when
reading data and potentially cause a crash via a
specially crafted PE file. (Bug 2031)
