138973 : Avira AntiVir RAR/CAB/ZIP/LH Scan Evasion

Risk 3 : Windows

The remote host is running an Avira AntiVir product. The scan engine of the installed product is earlier than 7.9.0.180 / 8.2.0.180. Such versions reportedly fail to properly inspect specially crafted RAR/CAB/ZIP/LH files. An attacker could embed code in such files in order to circumvent detection by anti-virus software.

Solution:
Use the Avira update feature to upgrade the scan engine to 7.9.0.180 / 8.2.0.180 or later.
