GLSA-200706-05 : ClamAV: Multiple Denials of Service
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 25534
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200706-05 (ClamAV: Multiple Denials of Service)
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in ClamAV by various researchers:
Victor Stinner (INL) discovered that the OLE2 parser may enter in an infinite loop (CVE-2007-2650).
A boundary error was also reported by an anonymous researcher in the file unsp.c, which might lead to a buffer overflow (CVE-2007-3023).
The file unrar.c contains a heap-based buffer overflow via a modified vm_codesize value from a RAR file (CVE-2007-3123).
The RAR parsing engine can be bypassed via a RAR file with a header flag value of 10 (CVE-2007-3122).
The cli_gentempstream() function from clamdscan creates temporary files with insecure permissions (CVE-2007-3024).
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted file to the scanner, possibly triggering one of the vulnerabilities. The two buffer overflows are reported to only cause Denial of Service. This would lead to a Denial of Service by CPU consumption or a crash of the scanner.
The insecure temporary file creation vulnerability could be used by a local user to access sensitive data.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-antivirus/clamav-0.90.3'
