ClamAV < 0.96.3 DoS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.

Description

Versions of ClamAV earlier than 0.96.3 are potentially affected by a denial-of-service vulnerability because the application fails to properly handle specially crafted PDF files. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, can crash the affected service.

Solution

Upgrade to ClamAV 0.96.3 or later.
