net-mail/antivirus please advise and provide an updated ebuild if needed. I'm 
not sure how easy these are to exploit, not much detail provided.

Eh, I have committed the ebuild first thing this morning, when I found
release announce in my mail, before reading this bug. So, there goes, unstable
for all used arches. :)
Comment 3 Andrej Kacian (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-25 02:59:04 UTC
Looks like the third mentioned overflow would be easy to exploit, since all it
takes is wrong value in headers of incoming data. Second one should be
exploitable as well, judging from the code, since it deals with too long filename.

As for the first mentioned changelog entry, it's some sort of boundary checking,
but I don't know clamav code too well, so I couldn't say whether it was
something with internal data, or with outside data.
