Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : clamav vulnerability (USN-2488-2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 81341


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


USN-2488-1 fixed a vulnerability in ClamAV for Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding update for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Sebastian Andrzej Siewior discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled certain upack packer files. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause ClamAV to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected clamav package.
