    Name        : clamav
    Product     : Fedora 31
    Version     : 0.101.5
    Release     : 1.fc31
    URL         : https://www.clamav.net/
    Summary     : End-user tools for the Clam Antivirus scanner
    Description :
    Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of this
    software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The
    package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command
    line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs
    are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package,
    which you can use with your own software. The virus database is based on
    the virus database from OpenAntiVirus, but contains additional signatures
    (including signatures for popular polymorphic viruses, too) and is KEPT UP
    TO DATE.

    - Drop This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. file (bz#1725810)  ClamAV 0.101.5 is a security patch
    release that addresses the following issues.  -       CVE-2019-15961:
    A Denial-of-Service (DoS) vulnerability may occur when scanning a specially
    crafted email file as a result of excessively long scan times. The issue is
    resolved by implementing several maximums in parsing MIME messages and by
    optimizing use of memory allocation. -   Added the zip scanning improvements
    found in v0.102.0 where it scans files using zip records from a sorted catalogue
    which provides deduplication of file records resulting in faster extraction and
    scan time and reducing the likelihood of alerting on non-malicious duplicate
    file entries as overlapping files. -   Signature load time is significantly
    reduced by changing to a more efficient algorithm for loading signature patterns
    and allocating the AC trie. Patch courtesy of Alberto Wu. -   Introduced a new
    configure option to statically link libjson-c with libclamav. Static linking
    with libjson is highly recommended to prevent crashes in applications that use
    libclamav alongside another JSON parsing library. -    Null-dereference fix in
    email parser when using the --gen-json metadata option.    ----  Add
    TimeoutStartSec=420 to [email protected] to match upstream
