Hello Mateusz, Gynvael, vendors,

  this is due the following ones:
  [1] https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9399
  [2] http://blog.clamav.net/2013/03/clamav-0977-has-been-released.html
  [3] https://github.com/vrtadmin/clamav-devel/blob/0.97/ChangeLog

I have tried to grep CLamAV's git log for further information, but many
of the commits prior to 2013-02-20 have form of:

'Fix CID#...' :(.

The only two security related ones seem to be the following two:

    cid 10776 - fix double free

commit 71990820d01c246e4e61408a3659dd9d92949b38

    Fixed heap corruption in wwunpack.c

We to be better able to tell, which concrete security flaws
got corrected in 0.97.7 version and based on that to properly
allocate CVE identifiers, could you please provide further
information about:
a) how many and what kind of issues got corrected in that
b) links to relevant upstream patches? (since patch log telling
   CID# wouldn't be enough either to find out the appropriate

Thank you for your time, look && cooperation in advance.
