- CVE-2012-6706

- CVE-2017-6419

- CVE-2017-11423

There are also a few bug fixes that were not assigned CVE’s, but were important enough to address while we had the chance. One of these was the notorious file descriptor exhaustion bug that caused outages late last January.

- CVE-2018-0202: Two newly reported vulnerabilities in the PDF parsing code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected clamav package.
