Multiple vulnerabilities in ClamAV may result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||app-antivirus/clamav on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.92.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.92.1|
Clam AntiVirus is a free anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.
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"
