Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

clamav was updated to version 0.98.5 to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- Segmentation fault when processing certain files
(CVE-2013-6497).

- Heap-based buffer overflow when scanning crypted PE
files (CVE-2014-9050).

The following non-security issues were fixed :

- Support for the XDP file format and extracting,
decoding, and scanning PDF files within XDP files.

- Addition of shared library support for LLVM versions 3.1
- 3.5 for the purpose of just-in-time(JIT) compilation
of ClamAV bytecode signatures.

- Enhancements to the clambc command line utility to
assist ClamAV bytecode signature authors by providing
introspection into compiled bytecode programs.

- Resolution of many of the warning messages from ClamAV
compilation.

- Improved detection of malicious PE files.

- ClamAV 0.98.5 now works with OpenSSL in FIPS compliant
mode (bnc#904207).

- Fix server socket setup code in clamd (bnc#903489).

- Change updateclamconf to prefer the state of the old
config file even for commented-out options (bnc#903719).
