I recently scanned my system with (I am running the latest version of ClamAV and my definitions are up-to-date):
sudo clamscan -r --detect-pua --infected --bell /
And this one was of the results:
/usr/share/mime/mime.cache: PUA.Win.Exploit.CVE_2012_0110 FOUND
I have not seen anything like this before, so what is this, is this anything to worry about, and should I do anything about it? Also, what is the purpose of the location that it was found in?
You can download the
mime.cache file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/58sxjv48ye4p6au/mime.cache?dl=0
And I appear to have found what this
CVE_2012_0110 is, as it is one of the vulnerabilities listed on this page.
I have scanned the file on VirusTotal, and although the only thing which detected something bad was in the Additional information section at the bottom, I don't necessarily trust that all is well because if something was say injected into that file or something, then perhaps it would be more heuristics that would detect it rather than matching MD5 sums. Here is the report: report
