ClamAV < 0.97.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6782
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.

Synopsis

The remote host is running an anti-virus application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of ClamAV earlier than 0.97.8 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An overflow condition in 'libclamav/pdf.c' may be triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling a specially crafted encrypted PDF file. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-2021)

- An overflow condition in 'libclamav/pe.c' may be triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling a specially crafted UPX-packed executable file. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-2020)

Solution

Upgrade to ClamAV 0.97.8 or later.
