Multiple vulnerabilities in ClamAV may result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||app-antivirus/clamav on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.93|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.93|
Clam AntiVirus is a free anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported:
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), or a Denial of Service.
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-0.93"
