Synopsis
========

Freshclam is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

ClamAV is a GPL virus scanner. Freshclam is a utility to download virus
signature updates.

Affected packages

Description
===========

Ulf Harnhammar and an anonymous German researcher discovered that
Freshclam fails to check the size of the header data returned by a
webserver.

Impact

could cause the execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround
