Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

ClamAV is an anti-virus utility for Unix, whose upstream developers have released the version 0.100.2. Installing this new version is required to make use of all current virus signatures and to avoid warnings.

This version also fixes a security issue discovered after version 0.100.1 :

CVE-2018-15378 :

A vulnerability in ClamAV's MEW unpacker may allow unauthenticated remote offenders to cause a denial of service (DoS) via a specially crafted EXE file.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 0.100.2+dfsg-0+deb8u1.

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.
