GLSA-200808-07 : ClamAV: Multiple Denials of Service

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200808-07
(ClamAV: Multiple Denials of Service)

Damian Put has discovered an out-of-bounds memory access while
processing Petite files (CVE-2008-2713, CVE-2008-3215). Also, please
note that the 0.93 ClamAV branch fixes the first of the two attack
vectors of CVE-2007-6595 concerning an insecure creation of temporary
files vulnerability. The sigtool attack vector seems still unfixed.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to scan a
specially crafted Petite file, possibly resulting in a Denial of
Service (daemon crash). Also, the insecure creation of temporary files
vulnerability can be triggered by a local user to perform a symlink

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-antivirus/clamav-0.93.3'

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
