Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-672-1 (clamav)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-672-1 (clamav)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to clamav
announced via advisory USN-672-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

strings when examining a VBA project. If a remote attacker tricked ClamAV
into processing a malicious VBA file, ClamAV would crash, leading to a
denial of service.

following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
libclamav5 0.94.dfsg.1-1ubuntu0.1
