Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDVSA-2010:082-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in clamav :

ClamAV before 0.96 does not properly handle the (1) CAB and (2) 7z
file formats, which allows remote attackers to bypass virus detection
via a crafted archive that is compatible with standard archive
utilities (CVE-2010-0098).

The qtm_decompress function in libclamav/mspack.c in ClamAV before
0.96 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption and application crash) via a crafted CAB archive that uses
the Quantum (aka .Q) compression format. NOTE: some of these details
are obtained from third-party information (CVE-2010-1311).

This update provides clamav 0.96, which is not vulnerable to these
issues.

Update :

Packages for 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance
Program.

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 : 7.4
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
