Debian DLA-1307-1 : clamav security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 108415

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Some vulnerabilities have been found in ClamAV, an open source antivirus engine :

CVE-2018-0202

It was found that ClamAV didn't process certain PDF files correctly, relating to a heap overflow. Specially crafted PDFs could yield ClamAV to crash, resulting in a denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2018-1000085

Hanno Böck discovered that ClamAV didn't process XAR files correctly. Malformed XAR files could cause ClamAV to crash by an out of bounds heap read. This could result in a denial of service.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.99.4+dfsg-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
