Ubuntu 9.04 : clamav vulnerability (USN-770-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)
