[GLSA-200511-04] ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-04
(ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities)
ClamAV has multiple security flaws: a boundary check was performed
incorrectly in petite.c, a buffer size calculation in unfsg_133 was
incorrect in fsg.c, a possible infinite loop was fixed in tnef.c and a
possible infinite loop in cabd_find was fixed in cabd.c . In addition
to this, Marcin Owsiany reported that a corrupted DOC file causes a
segmentation fault in ClamAV.
By sending a malicious attachment to a mail server that is hooked
with ClamAV, a remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service or the
execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.87.1"
Threat Level: High
