Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA776] DSA-776-1 clamav

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-776-1 clamav

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several bugs were discovered in Clam AntiVirus, the antivirus scanner
for Unix, designed for integration with mail servers to perform
attachment scanning. The following problems were identified:
Neel Mehta and Alex Wheeler discovered that Clam AntiVirus is
vulnerable to integer overflows when handling the TNEF, CHM and
FSG file formats.
Mark Pizzolato fixed a possible infinite loop that could cause a
denial of service.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected as it doesn't contain clamav.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.84-2.sarge.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.86.2-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.
