Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:080: clamav

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-2006:080 (clamav).



Ulf Harnhammar discovered that the freshclam tool does not do a proper

check for the size of header data received from a web server. This

could potentially permit a specially prepared HTTP server to exploit

freshclam clients connecting to a database mirror and causing a DoS.



The updated packages have been updated to Clamav 0.88.2 which corrects

this problem.
