Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:078 (clamav).


The anti virus scan engine ClamAV has been updated to version 0.88.7
to fix various security problems:

CVE-2006-5874: Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) permits remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (crash) via a malformed base64-encoded MIME
attachment that triggers a null pointer dereference.

CVE-2006-6481: Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) 0.88.6 permited remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (stack overflow and application crash)
by wrapping many layers of multipart/mixed content around a document,
a different vulnerability than CVE-2006-5874 and CVE-2006-6406.

CVE-2006-6406: Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) 0.88.6 permited remote attackers
to bypass virus detection by inserting invalid characters into base64
encoded content in a multipart/mixed MIME file, as demonstrated with
the EICAR test file.
