Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 / 15.04 : clamav vulnerabilities (USN-2594-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It was discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled certain malformed
files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause ClamAV to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.

In the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the ClamAV
AppArmor profile.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected clamav package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8

CVSS Temporal Score : 5.0
