Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009:327: clamav

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in clamav:

Unspecified vulnerability in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote
attackers to bypass detection of malware via a modified RAR archive
(CVE-2009-1241).

libclamav/pe.c in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) via a crafted EXE file that triggers a
divide-by-zero error (CVE-2008-6680).

libclamav/untar.c in ClamAV before 0.95 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted file that
causes (1) clamd and (2) clamscan to hang (CVE-2009-1270).

The CLI_ISCONTAINED macro in libclamav/others.h in ClamAV before 0.95.1
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) via a malformed file with UPack encoding (CVE-2009-1371).

Stack-based buffer overflow in the cli_url_canon function in
libclamav/phishcheck.c in ClamAV before 0.95.1 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted URL (CVE-2009-1372).

Important notice about this upgrade: clamav-0.95+ bundles support
for RAR v3 in libclamav which is a license violation as the RAR v3
license and the GPL license is not compatible. As a consequence to
this Mandriva has been forced to remove the RAR v3 code.

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.

This update provides clamav 0.95.2, which is not vulnerable to these
issues. Additionally klamav-0.46 is being provided that has support
for clamav-0.95+.
