-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0046 Package names: clamav, kernel Summary: Multiple vulnerabilities Date: 2006-08-11 Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2 Trustix Secure Linux 3.0 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package description: clamav Clam AntiVirus is a GPL 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 package, which you can use with your own software. Most importantly, the virus database is kept up to date . kernel The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your Trustix Secure Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc. Problem description: clamav < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > - New Upstream. - SECURITY Fix: Damian Put has discovered a vulnerability in ClamAV, which is caused due to an boundary error in the "pefromupx()" function in libclamav/upx.c when unpacking PE executable files compressed with UPX. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted UPX compressed file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2006-4018 this issue. kernel < TSL 3.0 > - New upstream. - SECURITY FIX: Linux kernel 2.6.x, when using both NFS and EXT3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (file system panic) via a crafted UDP packet with a V2 lookup procedure that specifies a bad file handle (inode number), which triggers an error and causes an exported directory to be remounted read-only. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2006-3468 to this issue. Action: We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded. Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this package, you may want to remove it from your system.
