Debian DLA-1461-1 : clamav security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 112047
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionClamAV, an anti-virus utility for Unix, has released the version 0.100.1. Installing this new version is required to make use of all current virus signatures and to avoid warnings.
This version also fixes two security issues discovered after version 0.100.0 :
Integer overflow with a resultant infinite loop via a crafted Hangul Word Processor file. Reported by Secunia Research at Flexera.
PDF object length check, unreasonably long time to parse a relatively small file. Reported by aCaB.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 0.100.1+dfsg-0+deb8u1.
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.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
