The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
A flaw was discovered in the clamav-milter initscript which caused the
ownership of the current working directory to be changed to the
'clamav' user. This update attempts to repair the incorrect ownership
for standard system directories, but it is recommended that the
following command be performed to report any other directories that
may be affected :
$ sudo find -H / -type d -user clamav \! -group clamav 2>/dev/null
Systems configured to run clamav as a user other than the default
'clamav' user will need to adjust the above command accordingly.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected packages.
