[GLSA-200501-46] ClamAV: Multiple issues Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
ClamAV: Multiple issues
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-46
(ClamAV: Multiple issues)
ClamAV fails to properly scan ZIP files with special headers
(CVE-2005-0133) and base64 encoded images in URLs.
By sending a base64 encoded image file in a URL a possible hacker could
evade virus scanning. By sending a specially-crafted ZIP file an
attacker could cause a Denial of Service by crashing the clamd daemon.
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-0.81"
Threat Level: Medium
