Debian Security Advisory DSA-1616-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Devin Carraway
July 26, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : clamav
Vulnerability : denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-2713
Debian Bug : 490925

This update corrects a packaging and build error in the packages
released in DSA-1616-1. Those packages, while functional, did not
actually apply the fix intended. This update restores the fix
to the package build; no other changes are introduced. For
reference, the text of the original advisory follows.

Damian Put discovered a vulnerability in the ClamAV anti-virus
toolkit's parsing of Petite-packed Win32 executables. The weakness
leads to an invalid memory access, and could enable an attacker to
crash clamav by supplying a maliciously crafted Petite-compressed
binary for scanning. In some configurations, such as when clamav
is used in combination with mail servers, this could cause a system
to "fail open," facilitating a follow-on viral attack.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies this
weakness as CVE-2008-2713.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.90.1dfsg-3.1+etch14. For the unstable distribution (sid),
the problem has been fixed in version 0.93.1.dfsg-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
