ClamAV Multiple Vulnerabilities (Windows)

Published: 2009-04-23 06:16:04
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C

Impact:
Remote attackers may exploit this issue to inject malicious files into the system which can bypass the scan engine and may cause denial of service.

Affected Versions:
ClamAV before 0.95 on Windows.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws are due to - Error in handling specially crafted RAR files which prevents the scanning of potentially malicious files. - Inadequate sanitation of files through a crafted TAR file causes clamd and clamscan to hang. - 'libclamav/pe.c' allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted EXE which triggers a divide-by-zero error.

Recommendations:
Upgrade to ClamAV 0.95 or later.

Summary:
This host has ClamAV installed, and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Type:
Windows Registry

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
