Package        : clamav
Vulnerability  : heap overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2006-0162
Debian Bug     : 320014

A heap overflow has been discovered in ClamAV, a virus scanner, which
could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code by sending a carefully
crafted UPX-encoded executable to a system runnig ClamAV. In addition,
other potential overflows have been corrected.

Packages for the ARM architecture were not available when DSA 947-1 was
released; these packages are now available. Also, DSA 947-1 incorrectly
identified the package version which corrected these issues in the
unstable distribution (sid).

The old stable distribution (woody) does not include ClamAV.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.84-2.sarge.7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.88-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package immediately.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge
- --------------------------------

  ARM architecture:

      Size/MD5 checksum:    63830 8fcc1f60dffe350cc1138f5217992032
      Size/MD5 checksum:    39510 10528078333fbf18bfc3a200d23b977b
      Size/MD5 checksum:  2171192 d45c061628d87b24bab8516564d7e1c0
      Size/MD5 checksum:    37310 abd9c3c02bf89e8eea072d66f01363eb
      Size/MD5 checksum:   174662 2f8277ebe9debd8bf8c997e66999cf82
      Size/MD5 checksum:   249490 e766e1d75c97b14b086ce0413b2c9cac

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
