Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200610-10
(ClamAV: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

Damian Put and an anonymous researcher reported a potential heap-based
buffer overflow vulnerability in rebuildpe.c responsible for the
rebuilding of an unpacked PE file, and a possible crash in chmunpack.c
in the CHM unpacker.

By sending a malicious attachment to a mail server running ClamAV, or
providing a malicious file to ClamAV through any other method, a remote
attacker could cause a Denial of Service and potentially the execution
of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running ClamAV.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
