Check for the version of the clamav package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:016 (clamav).
A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in ClamAV versions prior to 0.88
which allows remote attackers to cause a crash and possibly execute arbitrary
code via specially crafted UPX files. This update provides ClamAV 0.88 which
corrects this issue and also fixes some other bugs.
