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.


The remote host is running an anti-virus application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


Versions of ClamAV earlier than 0.96.5 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple error exists in the PDF processing functions in 'libclamav/pdf.c' which may lead to application crashes. (Bugs 2358, 2380, 2396)

- An off-by-one error exists in the handling of icons such that a crafted icon may be used to cause an integer overflow. (Bug 2344)


Upgrade to ClamAV 0.96.5 or later.
