Description Tomas Hoger 2008-04-15 07:26:13 EDT
Hanno Boeck reported following issue affecting clamav:

Description:
CERT-FI published an advisory with a large number of samples of crafted
archives. The file with the md5sum b6046d890e6bd304e3756c88b989559a (named
b6046d890e6bd304e3756c88b989559a.arj) hangs clamav with high load.

If you're running clamav on a mailserver, an attacker can DoS your Server
remotely by sending some mails with the archive attached.

Workaround/Fix:
clamav 0.93 fixes this issue beside other security issues, if you're running
clamav you should upgrade as soon as possible.
