    Package        : clamav
    Vulnerability  : integer overflows, infinete loop
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2450
    BugTraq ID     : 14359
    Several bugs were discovered in Clam AntiVirus, the antivirus scanner
    for Unix, designed for integration with mail servers to perform
    attachment scanning.  The following problems were identified:
        Neel Mehta and Alex Wheeler discovered that Clam AntiVirus is
        vulnerable to integer overflows when handling the TNEF, CHM and
        FSG file formats.
        Mark Pizzolato fixed a possible infinete loop that could cause a
        denial of service.
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected as it doesn't contain clamav.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.84-2.sarge.2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.86.2-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your clamav package.
