The Clamav development team released version 0.90 of their open-source antivirus toolkit today. This version contains fixes for security vulnerabilities described in a number of iDefense advisories that were published today.
ClamAV CAB File Denial of Service Vulnerability (CVE-2007-0898)
Remote attackers can perform a service degradation attack by sending a malformed CAB file through a gateway scanner running ClamAV. The vulnerability can prevent ClamAV from scanning archives succesfully by depleting the available local file descriptors. iDefense investigated a number of common setups and observed that in most cases, mails that cannot be scanned will be auto-denied.
ClamAV MIME Parsing Directory Traversal Vulnerability (CVE-2007-0897)
An input validation bug allows a remote user to overwrite files on the system that are owned by the clamd scanner. A potential target mentioned in the advisory is the virus database. By overwriting this file, the scanner's effectiveness against certain threats can be reduced significantly.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
