The remote antivirus service is vulnerable to a denial of service
According to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote
host is earlier than 0.94.2. There is a recursive stack overflow
involving the JPEG parsing code in such versions. A remote attacker
may be able to leverage this issue to cause the application to
recursively scan a specially crafted JPEG, which will eventually cause
it to crash.
