|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Clam AntiVirus: Denial of service (GLSA 201412-05)
Date: December 09, 2014
A vulnerability in Clam AntiVirus can lead to a Denial of Service
Clam AntiVirus is an open source (GPL) anti-virus toolkit for UNIX,
designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.
Vulnerable: < 0.98.5
Unaffected: >= 0.98.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
A heap-based buffer overflow exists in the cli_scanpe function in
libclamav/pe.c in ClamAV.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition via
a specially crafted file.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Clam AntiVirus users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.98.5"
