New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The antivirus service running on the remote host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


According to its version, the ClamAV clamd antivirus daemon running on the remote host is prior to 0.99.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities - one, which expose the system to a DoS attack and another, which provides potential adversaries with Remote Code Execution capabilities.


Upgrade to ClamAV version 0.99.3 or later.
