Some vulnerabilities have been found in ClamAV, an open source antivirus engine:
It was found that ClamAV didn't process certain PDF files correctly, relating to a heap overflow. Specially crafted PDFs could yield ClamAV to crash, resulting in a denial-of-service or potentially execution of arbitrary code.
Hanno Böck discovered that ClamAV didn't process XAR files correctly. Malformed XAR files could cause ClamAV to crash by an out of bounds heap read. This could result in a denial-of-service.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.99.4+dfsg-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your clamav packages.
