Incoming details.
Comment 1 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2018-10-06 17:46:58 UTC
A flaw was found in ClamAV's MEW unpacking feature that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

Package is not yet ready for stabilization, we will fix some additional issues first.
