Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Ulf Harnhammar discovered that the freshclam tool does not do a proper
check for the size of header data received from a web server. This
could potentially allow a specially prepared HTTP server to exploit
freshclam clients connecting to a database mirror and causing a DoS.

The updated packages have been updated to Clamav 0.88.2 which corrects
this problem.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
