Description

Package : clamav Version : 0.98.7+dfsg-0+deb6u1 CVE ID : CVE-2014-9328 CVE-2015-1461 CVE-2015-1462 CVE-2015-1463 CVE-2015-2170 CVE-2015-2221 CVE-2015-2222 CVE-2015-2668

Upstream published version 0.98.7. This update updates sqeeze-lts to the latest upstream release in line with the approach used for other Debian releases.

The changes are not strictly required for operation, but users of the previous version in Squeeze may not be able to make use of all current virus signatures and might get warnings.

The bug fixes that are part of this release include security fixes related to packed or crypted files (CVE-2014-9328, CVE-2015-1461, CVE-2015-1462, CVE-2015-1463, CVE-2015-2170, CVE-2015-2221, CVE-2015-2222, and CVE-2015-2668) and several fixes to the embedded libmspack library, including a potential infinite loop in the Quantum decoder (CVE-2014-9556).

If you use clamav, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to this version.
