Re: AMaViS virus scanner for Linux - root exploit
From: shiva () AACHALON DE (Christian Bricart)

The AMaViS incoming-mail virus scanning utility (available 
at <A TARGET=nonlocal
HREF="/external/http://aachalon.de/AMaViS/";>http://aachalon.de/AMaViS/</A>)
for Linux has 
problems.

I tried to contact the maintainer of the package
(Christian 
Bricart) on June 26, again several times over the course
of 
the last month, but I have not received anything from him 
and the AMaViS website does not yet acknowledge the
problem 
or provide a fix.

Sorry .. I have away from my terminal the last few weeks...
Usually every mail gets an reply within max. two days
delay.. (esp. when they are _that_ urgent)

Now to the possible exploit: 
<A TARGET=nonlocal
HREF="/external/http://aachalon.de/AMaViS/";>AMaViS
0.2.0-pre5</a> has been released, which should fix the
problem using your (slightly modified) patch...

Regards
  Christian Bricart
