Vulnerability in Avira Antivirus before 15.0.2004.1825 (CVE-2020-8961)

oval:org.cisecurity:def:7933

An issue was discovered in Avira Free-Antivirus before 15.0.2004.1825. The Self-Protection feature does not prohibit a write operation from an external process. Thus code injection can be used to turn off this feature. After that one can construct an event that will modify a file at a specific location and pass this event to the driver thereby defeating the anti-virus functionality.
