MDKSA-2006:080: clamav Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
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-2006:080 (clamav).

Ulf Harnhammar discovered that the freshclam tool does not do a proper

check for the size of header data received from a web server. This

could potentially allow a specially prepared HTTP server to exploit

freshclam clients connecting to a database mirror and causing a DoS.

The updated packages have been updated to Clamav 0.88.2 which corrects

this problem.
