Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDKSA-2006:184)

high Nessus Plugin ID 24569


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


An integer overflow in previous versions of ClamAV could allow a remote attacker to cause a Denial of Service (scanning service crash) and execute arbitrary code via a Portable Executable (PE) file (CVE-2006-4182).

Another vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to cause a DoS via a crafted compressed HTML (CHM) file that causes ClamAV to read an invalid memory location (CVE-2006-5295).

These issues are corrected in ClamAV 0.88.5 which is provided with this update.


Update the affected packages.
