Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Arkadiusz Miskiewicz and others discovered that the PDF processing
code in libclamav improperly validated input. This could allow a
remote attacker to craft a PDF document that could crash clamav or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-4260, CVE-2010-4479)

It was discovered that an off-by-one error in the icon_cb function in
pe_icons.c in libclamav could allow an attacker to corrupt memory,
causing clamav to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2010-4261)

In the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the clamav
AppArmor profile.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
