Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

remote attacker to cause a Denial of Service (scanning service crash)
and execute arbitrary code via a Portable Executable (PE) file
(CVE-2006-4182).

Another vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to cause a DoS via
a crafted compressed HTML (CHM) file that causes ClamAV to read an
invalid memory location (CVE-2006-5295).
