Description

Off-by-one error in the get_unicode_name function (libclamav/vba_extract.c) in Clam Anti-Virus (ClamAV) before 0.94.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted VBA project file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-clamav
  • suse-upgrade-clamav-db
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
