Details

Moritz Jodeit discovered that ClamAV did not correctly handle certain
strings when examining a VBA project. If a remote attacker tricked ClamAV
into processing a malicious VBA file, ClamAV would crash, leading to a
denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
