Name Description
CVE-2017-8308 In Avast Antivirus before v17, an unprivileged user (and thus malware or a virus) can mark an arbitrary process as Trusted from the perspective of the Avast product. This bypasses the Self-Defense feature of the product, opening a door to subsequent attack on many of its components.
CVE-2017-8307 In Avast Antivirus before v17, using the LPC interface API exposed by the AvastSVC.exe Windows service, it is possible to launch predefined binaries, or replace or delete arbitrary files. This vulnerability is exploitable by any unprivileged user when Avast Self-Defense is disabled. It is also exploitable in conjunction with CVE-2017-8308 when Avast Self-Defense is enabled. The vulnerability allows for Denial of Service attacks and hiding traces of a possible attack.
CVE-2017-5567 Code injection vulnerability in Avast Premier 12.3 (and earlier), Internet Security 12.3 (and earlier), Pro Antivirus 12.3 (and earlier), and Free Antivirus 12.3 (and earlier) allows a local attacker to bypass a self-protection mechanism, inject arbitrary code, and take full control of any Avast process via a "DoubleAgent" attack. One perspective on this issue is that (1) these products do not use the Protected Processes feature, and therefore an attacker can enter an arbitrary Application Verifier Provider DLL under Image File Execution Options in the registry; (2) the self-protection mechanism is intended to block all local processes (regardless of privileges) from modifying Image File Execution Options for these products; and (3) this mechanism can be bypassed by an attacker who temporarily renames Image File Execution Options during the attack.
CVE-2016-4025 Avast Internet Security v11.x.x, Pro Antivirus v11.x.x, Premier v11.x.x, Free Antivirus v11.x.x, Business Security v11.x.x, Endpoint Protection v8.x.x, Endpoint Protection Plus v8.x.x, Endpoint Protection Suite v8.x.x, Endpoint Protection Suite Plus v8.x.x, File Server Security v8.x.x, and Email Server Security v8.x.x allow attackers to bypass the DeepScreen feature via a DeviceIoControl call.
CVE-2016-3986 Avast allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PE file, related to authenticode parsing.
CVE-2015-8620 Heap-based buffer overflow in the Avast virtualization driver (aswSnx.sys) in Avast Internet Security, Pro Antivirus, Premier, and Free Antivirus before 11.1.2253 allows local users to gain privileges via a Unicode file path in an IOCTL request.
CVE-2015-5662 Directory traversal vulnerability in Avast before 150918-0 allows remote attackers to delete or write to arbitrary files via a crafted entry in a ZIP archive.
CVE-2013-0122 The avast! Mobile Security application before 2.0.4400 for Android allows attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted application that sends an intent to com.avast.android.mobilesecurity.app.scanner.DeleteFileActivity with zero arguments.
CVE-2010-5151 ** DISPUTED ** Race condition in avast! Internet Security 5.0.462 on Windows XP allows local users to bypass kernel-mode hook handlers, and execute dangerous code that would otherwise be blocked by a handler but not blocked by signature-based malware detection, via certain user-space memory changes during hook-handler execution, aka an argument-switch attack or a KHOBE attack. NOTE: this issue is disputed by some third parties because it is a flaw in a protection mechanism for situations where a crafted program has already begun to execute.
CVE-2010-3126 Untrusted search path vulnerability in avast! Free Antivirus version 5.0.594 and earlier allows local users, and possibly remote attackers, to execute arbitrary code and conduct DLL hijacking attacks via a Trojan horse mfc90loc.dll that is located in the same folder as an avast license (.avastlic) file.
CVE-2009-4049 Heap-based buffer overflow in aswRdr.sys (aka the TDI RDR driver) in avast! Home and Professional 4.8.1356.0 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges via crafted arguments to IOCTL 0x80002024.
CVE-2009-3522 Stack-based buffer overflow in aswMon2.sys in avast! Home and Professional for Windows 4.8.1351, and possibly other versions before 4.8.1356, allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) and possibly gain privileges via a crafted IOCTL request to IOCTL 0xb2c80018.
CVE-2008-6846 Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in avast! Linux Home Edition 1.0.5, 1.0.5-1, and 1.0.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code via a malformed (1) ISO or (2) RPM file.
CVE-2008-5523 avast! antivirus 4.8.1281.0, when Internet Explorer 6 or 7 is used, allows remote attackers to bypass detection of malware in an HTML document by placing an MZ header (aka "EXE info") at the beginning, and modifying the filename to have (1) no extension, (2) a .txt extension, or (3) a .jpg extension, as demonstrated by a document containing a CVE-2006-5745 exploit.
CVE-2007-6265 Unspecified vulnerability in avast! 4 Home and Professional Editions before 4.7.1098 allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted TAR archive.
CVE-2007-2846 Heap-based buffer overflow in the SIS unpacker in avast! Anti-Virus Managed Client before 4.7.700 allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SIS archive, resulting from an "integer cast around."
CVE-2007-2845 Heap-based buffer overflow in the CAB unpacker in avast! Anti-Virus Managed Client before 4.7.700 allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted CAB archive, resulting from an "integer cast around".
CVE-2007-0829 avast! Server Edition before 4.7.726 does not demand a password in a certain intended context, even when a password has been set, which allows local users to bypass authentication requirements.

CVE-2006-1892 avast! 4 Linux Home Edition 1.0.5 allows local users to modify permissions of arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the /tmp/_avast4_ temporary directory.
CVE-2006-1355 avast! Antivirus 4.6.763 and earlier sets "BUILTIN\Everyone" permissions to critical system files in the installation folder, which allows local users to gain privileges or disable protection by modifying those files.
CVE-2005-3214 Multiple interpretation error in unspecified versions of Avast Antivirus allows remote attackers to bypass virus detection via a malicious executable in a specially crafted RAR file with malformed central and local headers, which can still be opened by products such as Winrar and PowerZip, even though they are rejected as corrupted by Winzip and BitZipper.
CVE-2005-2384 Directory traversal vulnerability in a third-party compression library (UNACEV2.DLL), as used in avast! Antivirus Home/Professional Edition 4.6.665 and Server Edition 4.6.460, allows remote attackers to write arbitrary files via an ACE archive containing filenames with (1) .. or (2) absolute pathnames.
