Description

Integer signedness error in the (1) cab_unstore and (2) cab_extract functions in libclamav/cab.c in Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) before 0.90.2 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted CHM file that contains a negative integer, which passes a signed comparison and leads to a stack-based buffer overflow.

  • suse-upgrade-clamav

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
