critical Nessus Plugin ID 108311



The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to 0.99.4

0.99.4 addresses a few outstanding vulnerability bugs. It includes fixes for :

- CVE-2012-6706

- CVE-2017-6419

- CVE-2017-11423

- CVE-2018-1000085

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.

In addition to the above, 0.99.4 fixes :

- 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.
