A vulnerability has been fixed in clamav.
Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2011-106 
      Date: 2011-08-08
      Type: Remote

A vulnerability has been fixed in clamav.


An off-by-one error was found in the  way  the  hash  manager  of  Clam
AntiVirus, a GPL anti-virus toolkit for UNIX, performed scan of messages
with certain hashes. A remote attacker could  provide  a  message  with
specially-crafted hash signature in it, leading to  denial  of  service
(clamscan executable crash).

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    clamav, all before 0.97-44-15
  Pardus 2011:
    clamav, all before 0.97.2-47-p11

There are update(s) for clamav. You can update them via Package Manager
or with a single command from console:

  Pardus 2009:
    pisi up clamav

  Pardus 2011:
    pisi up clamav
