Debian DLA-233-1 : clamav security and upstream version update

high Nessus Plugin ID 83888
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Upstream published version 0.98.7. This update updates sqeeze-lts to the latest upstream release in line with the approach used for other Debian releases.

The changes are not strictly required for operation, but users of the previous version in Squeeze may not be able to make use of all current virus signatures and might get warnings.

The bug fixes that are part of this release include security fixes related to packed or crypted files (CVE-2014-9328, CVE-2015-1461, CVE-2015-1462, CVE-2015-1463, CVE-2015-2170, CVE-2015-2221, CVE-2015-2222, and CVE-2015-2668) and several fixes to the embedded libmspack library, including a potential infinite loop in the Quantum decoder (CVE-2014-9556).

If you use clamav, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to this version.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
