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-2007:043 (clamav).

Clam AntiVirus ClamAV before 0.90 does not close open file descriptors
under certain conditions, which permits remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (file descriptor consumption and failed scans) via
CAB archives with a cabinet header record length of zero, which causes
a function to return without closing a file descriptor. (CVE-2007-0897)
Directory traversal vulnerability in clamd in Clam AntiVirus ClamAV
before 0.90 permits remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a
.. (dot dot) in the id MIME header parameter in a multi-part message.
(CVE-2007-0898)
The update to 0.90 addresses these issues.
