Description :

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory reports :

Clam AntiVirus is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in 'libclamav/upx.c'
when processing malformed UPX-packed executables. It can also be sent
into an infinite loop in 'libclamav/fsg.c' when processing
specially crafted FSG-packed executables.

By sending a specially crafted file an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Clam
AntiVirus, or cause a Denial of Service.
