This update for clamav fixes the following issues:

Security issue fixed:

  • CVE-2019-12625: Fixed a ZIP bomb issue by adding detection and heuristics for zips with overlapping files (bsc#1144504).
  • CVE-2019-12900: Fixed an out-of-bounds write in decompress.c with many selectors (bsc#1149458).

Non-security issues fixed:

  • Added the --max-scantime clamscan option and MaxScanTime clamd configuration option (bsc#1144504).
  • Increased the startup timeout of clamd to 5 minutes to cater for the grown virus database as a workaround until clamd has learned to talk to systemd to extend the timeout as long as needed (bsc#1151839).
