Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA824] DSA-824-1 clamav

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-824-1 clamav

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Clam AntiVirus, the
antivirus scanner for Unix, designed for integration with mail servers
to perform attachment scanning. The following problems were
identified:
A potentially infinite loop could lead to a denial of service.
A buffer overflow could lead to a denial of service.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain ClamAV packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.84-2.sarge.4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.87-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.
