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
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSeveral remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ClamAV anti-virus toolkit, which may lead to denial of service and potentially to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :
- CVE-2006-1614 Damian Put discovered an integer overflow in the PE header parser. This is only exploitable if the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.
- CVE-2006-1615 Format string vulnerabilities in the logging code have been discovered, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
- CVE-2006-1630 David Luyer discovered, that ClamAV can be tricked into an invalid memory access in the cli_bitset_set() function, which may lead to a denial of service.
SolutionUpgrade the clamav package.
The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain clamav packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.84-2.sarge.8.
