Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in ClamAV allowing for
the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
ClamAV is a GPL virus scanner.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package               /  Vulnerable  /                 Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-antivirus/clamav      < 0.90.2                      >= 0.90.2

Description
==========
iDefense Labs have reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the
cab_unstore() function when processing negative values in .cab files.
Multiple file descriptor leaks have also been reported in chmunpack.c,
pdf.c and dblock.c when processing .chm files.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted CHM file to the
scanner, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running ClamAV.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.90.2"
