Debian Security Advisory DSA-1660-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
October 26, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : clamav
Vulnerability : null pointer derefence, resource exhaustation
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-3912, CVE-2008-3913, CVE-2008-3914

Several denial-of-service vulnerabilities have been discovered in
the ClamAV anti-virus toolkit:

Insufficient checking for out-of-memory conditions results in null
pointer derefences (CVE-2008-3912).

Incorrect error handling logic leads to memory leaks (CVE-2008-3913)
and file descriptor leaks (CVE-2008-3914).

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.90.1dfsg-4etch15.

For the unstable distribution (sid) and the testing distribution
(lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 0.94.dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.

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
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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