BitDefender PDF Scan Evasion

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is running an antivirus application that is
susceptible to a scan evasion attack.

Description :

The remote version of BitDefender Antivirus is running with a
signature update of May 13 2009 or earlier. Such versions are
affected by a scan evasion vulnerability. An attacker can exploit
this flaw to package malicious code in a specially crafted 'PDF' file
so that it will not be detected by the scan engine.

Solution :

Ensure the scan engine is using a signature update after May 13 2009
as that is reportedly when the vendor reportedly deployed a patch for
the issue.

Risk factor :

CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
