ClamAV < 0.92.0 PE File Handling Integer Overflow (deprecated)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4321

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running the ClamAV antivirus client.

This version of ClamAV is vulnerable to a remote integer overflow due to a content-parsing flaw when handling malformed PE files. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need the ability to send a malformed attachment to a system protected by ClamAV. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker overwriting critical memory blocks and either crashing the service or executing arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.92.0 or higher.
