Date: August 08, 2006
Bugs: #143093

Synopsis
========

ClamAV is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow resulting in a
Denial of Service and potentially remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

ClamAV is a GPL virus scanner.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-antivirus/clamav < 0.88.4 >= 0.88.4

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

Damian Put has discovered a boundary error in the pefromupx() function
used by the UPX extraction module, which unpacks PE Windows executable
files. Both the "clamscan" command-line utility and the "clamd"
daemon
are affected.

Impact
======

By sending a malicious attachment to a mail server running ClamAV, a
remote attacker can cause a Denial of Service and potentially the
execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
ClamAV.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.88.4"
