    On 25 April, the Debian Security Team released clamav 0.90.1-3etch1, an update to the Clam anti-virus toolkit, to address several vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, there was an error in the updated packages and CVE-2007-2029, a file descriptor leak in the PDF document handler, was not properly fixed in Debian 4.0 (etch) or the Debian testing distribution (lenny). This problem has been fixed in version 0.90.1-3etch2 for Debian 4.0 (etch).

    On 25 April, the Debian Security Team released clamav 0.90.1-3etch1, an update
    to the Clam anti-virus toolkit, to address several vulnerabilities.
    Unfortunately, there was an error in the updated packages and CVE-2007-2029, a
    file descriptor leak in the PDF document handler, was not properly fixed in
    Debian 4.0 (etch) or the Debian testing distribution (lenny).
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 0.90.1-3etch2 for Debian 4.0 (etch).
    The problem will be fixed in testing (lenny) in version
    clamav_0.90.1-3.1lenny2, to be released via the testing-security channel, as
    soon as possible.  Other versions of Debian are not affected.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.
