Vulnerability Assessment Details
ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-06
(ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities)
ClamAV contains format string vulnerabilities in the logging code
(CVE-2006-1615). Furthermore Damian Put discovered an integer overflow
in ClamAV's PE header parser (CVE-2006-1614) and David Luyer discovered
that ClamAV can be tricked into performing an invalid memory access
By sending a malicious attachment to a mail server running ClamAV,
a remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service or the execution of
arbitrary code. Note that the overflow in the PE header parser is only
exploitable when the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.88.1"
Network Security Threat Level: High
