Package        : clamav
Vulnerability  : null pointer derefence, resource exhaustation
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-3912, CVE-2008-3913, CVE-2008-3914

Several denial-of-service vulnerabilities have been discovered in
the ClamAV anti-virus toolkit:

Insufficient checking for out-of-memory conditions results in null
pointer derefences (CVE-2008-3912).

Incorrect error handling logic leads to memory leaks (CVE-2008-3913)
and file descriptor leaks (CVE-2008-3914).

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.90.1dfsg-4etch15.

For the unstable distribution (sid) and the testing distribution
(lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 0.94.dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.
