Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Clam AntiVirus ClamAV before 0.90 does not close open file descriptors
under certain conditions, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (file descriptor consumption and failed scans) via
CAB archives with a cabinet header record length of zero, which causes
a function to return without closing a file descriptor.

Directory traversal vulnerability in clamd in Clam AntiVirus ClamAV
before 0.90 allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a
.. (dot dot) in the id MIME header parameter in a multi-part message.

The update to 0.90 addresses these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.4
