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 Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-21 (ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Moritz Jodeit reported an off-by-one error within the get_unicode_name() function in libclamav/vba_extract.c when processing VBA project files (CVE-2008-5050). Ilja van Sprundel reported an infinite recursion error within the cli_check_jpeg_exploit() function in libclamav/special.c when processing JPEG files (CVE-2008-5314).
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted VBA or JPEG file to the clamd daemon, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application or a Denial of Service.
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-0.94.2'
