critical Nessus Plugin ID 22566
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several 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.


Upgrade 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.
