GLSA-200604-06 : ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-06
(ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities)

ClamAV contains format string vulnerabilities in the logging code
(CVE-2006-1615). Furthermore Damian Put discovered an integer overflow
in ClamAV's PE header parser (CVE-2006-1614) and David Luyer discovered
that ClamAV can be tricked into performing an invalid memory access
(CVE-2006-1630).

Impact :

By sending a malicious attachment to a mail server running ClamAV,
a remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service or the execution of
arbitrary code. Note that the overflow in the PE header parser is only
exploitable when the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-antivirus/clamav-0.88.1'

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
