Synopsis

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

Description

Clam AntiVirus ClamAV before 0.90 does not close open file descriptors under certain conditions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (file descriptor consumption and failed scans) via CAB archives with a cabinet header record length of zero, which causes a function to return without closing a file descriptor.
(CVE-2007-0897)

Directory traversal vulnerability in clamd in Clam AntiVirus ClamAV before 0.90 allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in the id MIME header parameter in a multi-part message.
(CVE-2007-0898)

The update to 0.90 addresses these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
