    Summary:
    
    USN-3722-1 introduced a regression in ClamAV.
    
    Software Description:
    - clamav: Anti-virus utility for Unix
    
    Details:
    
    USN-3722-1 fixed vulnerabilities in ClamAV. The new package introduced
    an issue which caused dpkg-reconfigure to enter an infinite loop. This
    update fixes the problem.
    
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     It was discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled parsing certain HWP
     files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause ClamAV to hang,
     resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2018-0360)

     resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2018-0361)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      clamav                          0.100.1+dfsg-1ubuntu0.12.04.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
