Authored by Thierry Zoller

The AVIRA parsing engine supports the ISO container format. The parsing engine can be bypassed by specifically manipulating the ISO Archive This leads to the Endpoint ignoring the container and the Gateways to let this file slip through uninspected. Avira does not patch or update their very popular command line scanner that is still available for download on their website. AV Engine versions below 8.3.54.138 are affected.

that is still available for download on their website. Since Avira does
not release and advisory their customers are none the wiser.

use the Avira Engine may be vulnerable or not. I would advise that you

II. Description
----------------------------
The parsing engine supports the ISO container format. The parsing engine
can be bypassed by specifically manipulating the ISO Archive
This leads to the Endpoint ignoring the container and the Gateways to
let this file slip through uninspected.


III. Impact
----------------------------
It bypasses Avira perimeter defenses and sheduled AV scans.

Impacts depends on the contextual use of the product and engine within
the organisation
of a customer. Gateway Products (Email, HTTP Proxy etc) may allow the
file through unscanned
and give it a clean bill of health. Server side AV software will not be
able to discover
any code or sample contained within this ISO file and it will not raise
suspicion even
if you know exactly what you are looking for (Which is for example great
to hide your implants
or Exfiltration/Pivot Server).

There is a lot more to be said about this bug class, so rather than bore
you with it in
