Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200802-09)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 21, 2008
Bug(s): #209915
ID: 200802-09

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities in ClamAV may result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Clam AntiVirus is a free anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.

Affected Packages

Package: app-antivirus/clamav
Vulnerable: < 0.92.1
Unaffected: >= 0.92.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

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).

Impact

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).

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.92.1"
