|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: ClamAV: Denial of Service (GLSA 200612-18)
Date: December 18, 2006
ClamAV is vulnerable to Denial of Service.
ClamAV is a GPL virus scanner.
Vulnerable: < 0.88.7
Unaffected: >= 0.88.7
Architectures: All supported architectures
Hendrik Weimer discovered that ClamAV fails to properly handle deeply nested MIME multipart/mixed content.
By sending a specially crafted email with deeply nested MIME multipart/mixed content an attacker could cause ClamAV to crash.
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-0.88.7"
