ClamAV < 0.92.1 Multiple Overflows (deprecated)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4375


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The remote host is running ClamAV client.

This version of ClamAV is vulnerable to several flaws due to the way that it parses user-supplied input. It has been reported that there is a heap overflow within the 'mew.c' file. It has further been reported that there is an integer overflow in the 'cli_scanpe' function of the 'pe.c' file. An attacker exploiting these flaws would either crash the service or execute arbitrary code on the remote machine.


Upgrade to version 0.92.1 or higher.
