ClamAV < 0.90.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3917

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running the ClamAV antivirus client.

This version of ClamAV is vulnerable to a flaw where a CAB file with a reported length of zero can cause ClamAV to crash. In addition, the ClamAV application is vulnerable to a directory traversal flaw. An attacker, by specifying a file name which has '../' or '..\' strings, can overwrite critical system files. In both instances, the attacker only needs to be able to send files that are processed by ClamAV.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.90.0 or higher.
