The remote antivirus service is affected by a denial of service
According to its version, the ClamAV clamd antivirus daemon on the
remote host is earlier than 0.97.2. As such, it is potentially
affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
An off-by-one error exists in the 'cli_hm_scan' function in the file
'libclamav/matcher-hash.c' that can be exploited by a specially
crafted message causing the clamd daemon to crash.
