Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDVSA-2010:082-1)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 45567
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in clamav :
ClamAV before 0.96 does not properly handle the (1) CAB and (2) 7z file formats, which allows remote attackers to bypass virus detection via a crafted archive that is compatible with standard archive utilities (CVE-2010-0098).
The qtm_decompress function in libclamav/mspack.c in ClamAV before 0.96 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a crafted CAB archive that uses the Quantum (aka .Q) compression format. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third-party information (CVE-2010-1311).
This update provides clamav 0.96, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
Packages for 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance Program.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
