[DSA1024] DSA-1024-1 clamav Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-1024-1 clamav

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ClamAV
anti-virus toolkit, which may lead to denial of service and potentially
to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Damian Put discovered an integer overflow in the PE header parser.
This is only exploitable if the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.
Format string vulnerabilities in the logging code have been discovered,
which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
David Luyer discovered, that ClamAV can be tricked into an invalid
memory access in the cli_bitset_set() function, which may lead to
a denial of service.
The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain clamav packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.84-2.sarge.8.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.88.1-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.
