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 antivirus service is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote host is earlier than 0.94.1. Such versions have an off-by-one heap overflow vulnerability in the code responsible for parsing VBA project files, specifically in the 'get_unicode_name()' function of 'libclamav/vba_extract.c', when a specific 'name' buffer is passed to it.
Using a specially crafted VBA project file embedded in an OLE2 Office document, a remote attacker can trigger this vulnerability and execute arbitrary code on the remote host with the privileges of the 'clamd' process.
SolutionUpgrade to ClamAV 0.94.1 or later.
