ClamAV < 0.98.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9260
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 0.98.7 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'pefromupx()' function in 'upx.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, via a specially crafted file, to crash the application. (CVE-2015-2170)
- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'yc_poly_emulator()' function in 'yc.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, via a specially crafted y0da cryptor file, to cause an infinite loop and application hang. (CVE-2015-2221)
- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'cli_scanpe()' function in 'pe.c'. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted petite packer file, to crash the program. (CVE-2015-2222)
- An integer overflow condition exists in the bundled Henry Spencer regex library in the 'regcomp()' function in 'regcomp.c' due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2305)
- An unspecified flaw exists when handling specially crafted '.xz' archive files. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause an infinite loop. (CVE-2015-2668)

Solution

Upgrade to ClamAV 0.98.7 or later.
