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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSome vulnerabilities have been found in ClamAV, an open source antivirus engine :
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.
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.
