ClamAV < 0.95 Scan Evasion (deprecated)

High

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical security patch or upgrade.

Description

According to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote host is earlier than 0.95. Such versions fail to handle certain malformed 'RAR' archive files, and hence it may be possible for certain archive files to evade detection from the scan engine.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.95 or higher.
