The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ClamAV anti-virus toolkit, which may lead to denial of service and potentially to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2006-1614 Damian Put discovered an integer overflow in the PE header parser. This is only exploitable if the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.

- CVE-2006-1615 Format string vulnerabilities in the logging code have been discovered, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2006-1630 David Luyer discovered, that ClamAV can be tricked into an invalid memory access in the cli_bitset_set() function, which may lead to a denial of service.


Upgrade the clamav package.

The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain clamav packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.84-2.sarge.8.
