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 FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionAdvisory from Moritz Jodeit, November 8th, 2008 :
ClamAV contains an off-by-one heap overflow vulnerability in the code responsible for parsing VBA project files. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the `clamd' process by sending an email with a prepared attachment.
A VBA project file embedded inside an OLE2 office document send as an attachment can trigger the off-by-one.
