ClamAV < 0.96.3 Denial-of-Service Vulnerability

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running an anti-virus application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of ClamAV earlier than 0.96. are potentially affected by a denial-of-service vulnerability because the application fails to properly handle specially crafted PDF files. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, can crash the affected service.

Solution

Upgrade to ClamAV 0.96.3 or later.
