A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
ClamAV could be made to crash or run programs if it processed a specially crafted file.
Software Description: - clamav: Anti-virus utility for Unix
Damien Millescamp discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled certain PE files. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause ClamAV to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-9050)
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
Ubuntu 14.10: clamav 0.98.5+dfsg-0ubuntu0.14.10.1
