Clam AntiVirus is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in

can also be sent into an infinite loop in 'libclamav/fsg.c' when
processing specially crafted FSG-packed executables.
By sending a specially crafted file an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Clam AntiVirus,
or cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
