The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-21
(ClamAV: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Moritz Jodeit reported an off-by-one error within the
get_unicode_name() function in libclamav/vba_extract.c when processing
VBA project files (CVE-2008-5050). Ilja van Sprundel reported an
infinite recursion error within the cli_check_jpeg_exploit() function
in libclamav/special.c when processing JPEG files (CVE-2008-5314).
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted VBA or JPEG file to
the clamd daemon, possibly resulting in the remote execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application
or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
