high Nessus Plugin ID 51117

Language:

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.

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Arkadiusz Miskiewicz and others discovered that the PDF processing code in libclamav improperly validated input. This could allow a remote attacker to craft a PDF document that could crash clamav or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-4260, CVE-2010-4479)

It was discovered that an off-by-one error in the icon_cb function in pe_icons.c in libclamav could allow an attacker to corrupt memory, causing clamav to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2010-4261)

In the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the clamav AppArmor profile.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
