Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA947] DSA-947-2 clamav

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-947-2 clamav

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A heap overflow has been discovered in ClamAV, a virus scanner, which
could permit a possible hacker to execute arbitrary code by sending a carefully
crafted UPX-encoded executable to a system running ClamAV. In addition,
other potential overflows have been corrected.
Packages for the ARM architecture were not available when DSA 947-1 was
released
these packages are now available. Also, DSA 947-1 incorrectly
identified the package version which corrected these issues in the
unstable distribution (sid).
The old stable distribution (woody) does not include ClamAV.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.84-2.sarge.7.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.88-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package immediately.
