Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDKSA-2005:025)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 16291


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Two problems were discovered in versions of clamav prior to 0.81. An attacker could evade virus scanning by sending a base64-encoded imaege file in a URL. Also, by sending a specially crafted ZIP file, an attacker could cause a DoS (Denial of Service) by crashing the clamd daemon.


Update the affected packages.
