Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-08-23 08:03:15 UTC
From ${URL} :

libclamav/message.c in ClamAV 0.99.2 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a crafted e-mail message.

Upstream patch:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
