Kolab Security Issue 23 20081202

Package:              Kolab Server, ClamAV
Vulnerability:        various
Kolab Specific:       no
Dependent Packages:   none


Moritz Jodeit reports that ClamAV up to version 0.94 contains an
off-by-one heap overflow vulnerability in the code responsible for
parsing VBA project files. Successful exploitation could allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the `clamd'
process by sending an email with a prepared attachment.

Ilja Van Sprundel reported a denial-of-service vulnerability and an
unconfirmed possibility to run arbitrary code in ClamAV up to version
0.94.1 by sending malformed JPEG files.

This affects versions of ClamAV up to version 0.94.1

All other server versions: Please build from the src.rpm.

The mirrors are listed on http://kolab.org/mirrors.html
While the mirrors are catching up, you can also get the package via rsync:
# rsync -tvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/kolab/server/security-updates/20081202/clamav-0.94.2-20081202.src.rpm .
# rsync -tvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/kolab/server/security-updates/20081202/clamav-0.94.2-20081202.ix86-debian3.1-kolab.rpm .
# rsync -tvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/kolab/server/security-updates/20081202/clamav-0.94.2-20081202.ix86-debian4.0-kolab.rpm .

The package can be installed on your Kolab Server with

# /kolab/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild clamav-0.94.2-20081202.src.rpm
# /kolab/bin/openpkg rpm \
  -Uvh /kolab/RPM/PKG/clamav-0.94.2-20081202.<ARCH>-<OS>-kolab.rpm
# rm /kolab/etc/clamav/*.rpmsave
# /kolab/bin/openpkg rc clamav stop
# /kolab/bin/openpkg rc clamav start
# su - kolab-r
$ freshclam
$ rm -r /kolab/share/clamav/*.inc

For Kolab Server 2.0.4 you have to copy the new /kolab/etc/clamav/clamd.conf
to /kolab/etc/kolab/templates/clamd.conf.template so it will not be
overwritten by kolabconf. Do NOT copy this file with Kolab Server 2.1 or 2.2!
