Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDVSA-2010:082-1)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 45567


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


Multiple 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.

Update :

Packages for 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance Program.


Update the affected packages.
