Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the clamav package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:125 (clamav).



Neel Mehta and Alex Wheeler discovered integer overflow vulnerabilites in Clam
AntiVirus when handling the TNEF, CHM, and FSG file formats. By sending a
specially-crafted file, a possible hacker could execute arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running Clam AV.

This update provides clamav 0.86.2 which is not vulnerable to these issues.
