Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDVSA-2009:097)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in clamav :

Unspecified vulnerability in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote
attackers to bypass detection of malware via a modified RAR archive
(CVE-2009-1241).

libclamav/pe.c in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) via a crafted EXE file that triggers a
divide-by-zero error (CVE-2008-6680).

libclamav/untar.c in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted file that
causes (1) clamd and (2) clamscan to hang (CVE-2009-1270).

The CLI_ISCONTAINED macro in libclamav/others.h in ClamAV before
0.95.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a malformed file with UPack encoding
(CVE-2009-1371).

Stack-based buffer overflow in the cli_url_canon function in
libclamav/phishcheck.c in ClamAV before 0.95.1 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted URL (CVE-2009-1372).

Important notice about this upgrade: clamav-0.95+ bundles support for
RAR v3 in libclamav which is a license violation as the RAR v3 license
and the GPL license is not compatible. As a consequence to this
Mandriva has been forced to remove the RAR v3 code.

This update provides clamav 0.95.1, which is not vulnerable to these
issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.7
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
