Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for clamav fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

- CVE-2019-12625: Fixed a ZIP bomb issue by adding detection and heuristics for zips with overlapping files (bsc#1144504).

- CVE-2019-12900: Fixed an out-of-bounds write in decompress.c with many selectors (bsc#1149458).

Non-security issues fixed :

- Added the --max-scantime clamscan option and MaxScanTime clamd configuration option (bsc#1144504).

- Increased the startup timeout of clamd to 5 minutes to cater for the grown virus database as a workaround until clamd has learned to talk to systemd to extend the timeout as long as needed (bsc#1151839).

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected clamav packages.
