Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Clam anti-virus toolkit, which may lead to denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2007-0897 It was discovered that malformed CAB archives may exhaust file descriptors, which allows denial of service.

  • CVE-2007-0898 It was discovered that a directory traversal vulnerability in the MIME header parser may lead to denial of service.
