High Nessus Plugin ID 65655
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionFelix Groebert, Mateusz Jurczyk and Gynvael Coldwind discovered multiple security issues with ClamAV. An attacker could use these issues to cause ClamAV to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected clamav, clamav-daemon and / or libclamav6 packages.
