Synopsis
========

ClamAV contains two vulnerabilities that could lead to Denial of
Service and evasion of virus scanning.

Background
==========

ClamAV is an antivirus toolkit. It includes a multi-threaded daemon and
a command line scanner.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package               /  Vulnerable  /                 Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-antivirus/clamav       <= 0.80                        >= 0.81

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

ClamAV fails to properly scan ZIP files with special headers
(CAN-2005-0133) and base64 encoded images in URLs.

Impact
======

By sending a base64 encoded image file in a URL an attacker could evade
virus scanning. By sending a specially-crafted ZIP file an attacker
could cause a Denial of Service by crashing the clamd daemon.

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-0.81"
