|Summary:||Debian Security Advisory DSA 1435-1 (clamav)|
|Description:||The remote host is missing an update to clamav|
announced via advisory DSA 1435-1.
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Clam
anti-virus toolkit. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
It was discovered that an integer overflow in the decompression code
for MEW archives may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
It was discovered that on off-by-one in the MS-ZIP decompression
code may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected by these problems.
However, since the clamav version from Sarge cannot process all current
Clam malware signatures any longer, support for the ClamAV in Sarge is
now discontinued. We recommend to upgrade the the stable distribution
or run a backport of the stable version.
The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.
