ClamAV < 0.88.2 HTTP Header Remote Overflow (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running ClamAV, an antivirus application. There is a remote buffer overflow within this version of ClamAV. Specifically, if an attacker were able to spoof or gain control of a ClamAV update server, the attacker could craft a malicious HTTP response that would trigger a buffer overflow. Successful exploitation would result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.88.2 or higher.
