Debian DLA-1279-1 : clamav security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106780

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

CVE-2017-6419 CVE-2017-11423

Two vulnerabilities have been fixed that can be used for denial of service or maybe unspecified impact via drafted files (heap-based buffer overflow and stack-based buffer over-read causing application crash)

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.99.2+dfsg-0+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
