Description Tomas Hoger 2008-04-16 11:39:43 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-1836 to the following vulnerability:

The rfc2231 function in message.c in libclamav in ClamAV before 0.93
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a
crafted message that produces a string that is not null terminated,
which triggers a buffer over-read.

Fixed in 0.93.
