Title: ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200802-09)
Date: February 21, 2008
Multiple vulnerabilities in ClamAV may result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.
Clam AntiVirus is a free anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.
Vulnerable: < 0.92.1
Unaffected: >= 0.92.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
An integer overflow has been reported in the "cli_scanpe()" function in file libclamav/pe.c (CVE-2008-0318). Another unspecified vulnerability has been reported in file libclamav/mew.c (CVE-2008-0728).
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to scan a specially crafted file, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running ClamAV (either a system user or the "clamav" user if clamd is compromised).
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-0.92.1"
