Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

This update to ClamAV version 0.88.7 fixes various bugs :

- Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) via a malformed
base64-encoded MIME attachment that triggers a NULL
pointer dereference. (CVE-2006-5874)

- Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) 0.88.6 allowed remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (stack overflow and
application crash) by wrapping many layers of
multipart/mixed content around a document, a different
vulnerability than CVE-2006-5874 / CVE-2006-6406.
(CVE-2006-6481)

- Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) 0.88.6 allowed remote attackers
to bypass virus detection by inserting invalid
characters into base64 encoded content in a
multipart/mixed MIME file, as demonstrated with the
EICAR test file. (CVE-2006-6406)
