The antivirus scanner ClamAV has been updated to version 0.98.1, which includes the following fixes :

- Code quality fixes in libclamav, clamd, sigtool, clamav-milter, clamconf, and clamdtop.

- Code quality fixes in libclamav, libclamunrar and freshclam.

- bb #7436: elf64 header early exit.

- libclamav: SCAN_ALL mode fixes.

- iso9660: iso_scan_file rewrite.

Version 0.98.1 also implements support for new file types, and quality improvements, including Extraction, decompression, and scanning of files within the Extensible Archive (XAR)/Apple Disk Image (DMG) format, support for decompression and scanning of files in the 'Xz' compression format.

Additionally, improvements and fixes were done to extraction and scanning of OLE formats. An option to force all scanned data to disk was added. Various improvements to ClamAV configuration, support of third-party libraries, and unit tests were done.

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