Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDKSA-2005:205)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 20439


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


A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in ClamAV versions prior to 0.87.1 :

The OLE2 unpacker in clamd allows remote attackers to cause a DoS (segfault) via a DOC file with an invalid property tree (CVE-2005-3239)

The FSG unpacker allows remote attackers to cause 'memory corruption' and execute arbitrary code via a crafted FSG 1.33 file (CVE-2005-3303)

The tnef_attachment() function allows remote attackers to cause a DoS (infinite loop and memory exhaustion) via a crafted value in a CAB file that causes ClamAV to repeatedly scan the same block (CVE-2005-3500)

Remote attackers could cause a DoS (infinite loop) via a crafted CAB file (CVE-2005-3501)

An improper bounds check in petite.c could allow attackers to perform unknown attacks via unknown vectors (CVE-2005-3587)

This update provides ClamAV 0.87.1 which corrects all of these issues.


Update the affected packages.
