MDKSA-2007:043: 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-2007:043 (clamav).
Clam AntiVirus ClamAV before 0.90 does not close open file descriptors
under certain conditions, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (file descriptor consumption and failed scans) via
CAB archives with a cabinet header record length of zero, which causes
a function to return without closing a file descriptor. (CVE-2007-0897)
Directory traversal vulnerability in clamd in Clam AntiVirus ClamAV
before 0.90 allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a
.. (dot dot) in the id MIME header parameter in a multi-part message.
The update to 0.90 addresses these issues.
