ClamAV < 0.97.2 DoS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running an anti-virus application that is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.

Description

Versions of ClamAV earlier than 0.97.2 are potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability. An off-by-one error exists in the 'cli_hm_scan' function in the file 'libclamav/matcher-hash.c' that can be exploited by a specially crafted message causing the clamd daemon to crash.

Solution

Upgrade to ClamAV 0.97.2 or later.
