Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The following CVE(s) were found in src:clamav package.

CVE-2020-3327

A vulnerability in the ARJ archive parsing module in Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition on an affected device. The vulnerability is due to a heap buffer overflow read. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted ARJ file to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause the ClamAV scanning process crash, resulting in a denial of service condition.

CVE-2020-3341

A vulnerability in the PDF archive parsing module in Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition on an affected device. The vulnerability is due to a stack-based buffer overflow read. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted PDF file to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause the ClamAV scanning process crash, resulting in a denial of service condition.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 0.101.5+dfsg-0+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.
