Description

According to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote host is earlier than 0.96. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An attacker could bypass antivirus detection by embedding malicious code in a specially crafted 'CAB' file. (1826)

  • An error in the 'qtm_decompress()' function in 'libclamav/mspack.c' could lead to memory corruption when scanning a specially crafted Quantum-compressed file. (1771)
