> DESCRIPTION:
> A vulnerability has been reported in ClamAV, which can be exploited
> by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and
> potentially to compromise a vulnerable system.
> 
> The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the HTTP
> client in the Freshclam command line utility. This can be exploited
> to cause a stack-based buffer overflow when the HTTP headers received
> from a web server exceeds 8KB. 
> 
> Successful exploitation requires that Freshclam is used to download
> virus signature updates from a malicious mirror web server e.g. via
> DNS poisoning.
> 
> The vulnerability has been reported in version 0.80 through 0.88.1.
> 
> SOLUTION:
> Update to version 0.88.2.
