Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Stephane Chazelas discovered the bytecode engine of ClamAV improperly
handled recursion under certain circumstances. This could allow a
remote attacker to craft a file that could cause ClamAV to crash,
resulting in a denial of service.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected libclamav6 package.
