clamav was updated to version 0.98.5 to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed: - Segmentation fault when processing certain files (CVE-2013-6497). - Heap-based buffer overflow when scanning crypted PE files (CVE-2014-9050).

The following non-security issues were fixed: - Support for the XDP file format and extracting, decoding, and scanning PDF files within XDP files. - Addition of shared library support for LLVM versions 3.1 - 3.5 for the purpose of just-in-time(JIT) compilation of ClamAV bytecode signatures. - Enhancements to the clambc command line utility to assist ClamAV bytecode signature authors by providing introspection into compiled bytecode programs. - Resolution of many of the warning messages from ClamAV compilation. - Improved detection of malicious PE files. - ClamAV 0.98.5 now works with OpenSSL in FIPS compliant mode (bnc#904207). - Fix server socket setup code in clamd (bnc#903489). - Change updateclamconf to prefer the state of the old config file even for commented-out options (bnc#903719).
