    clamav vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 15.04
    - Ubuntu 14.10
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    ClamAV could be made to crash or run programs if it processed a specially
    crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - clamav: Anti-virus utility for Unix
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled certain malformed files.
    A remote attacker could use this issue to cause ClamAV to crash, resulting
    in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    In the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the ClamAV
    AppArmor profile.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 15.04:
      clamav                          0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu0.15.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.10:
      clamav                          0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      clamav                          0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      clamav                          0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
    
    This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
    fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
