ClamAV < 0.87.2 Content-parsing DoS (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running ClamAV, an open-source antivirus solution for Unix-like systems. This version of ClamAV is reported vulnerable to a flaw where the parsing of a malicious file will cause the clamav process to enter an infinite loop. Successful exploitation causes the clamd service to exit.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.87.2 or higher.
