NOD32 Antivirus Run-Time Decompressors Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 25756
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 Windows host has an application that is affected by multiple issues.


The version of NOD32 installed on the remote host reportedly contains several problems with its run-time decompressors involving processing of '.CAB' files as well as 'ASPACK'- and 'FSB'-packed files. If a remote attacker can cause a malicious file to be scanned by the affected application, these issues could be leveraged to crash the affected application or to execute arbitrary code.


Run NOD32's Update feature an ensure the version of the virus signature database is at least v.2289.
