ClamAV vulnerability

Unread post by faris »

There's some sort of update out for ClamAV regarding a vulnerability.

What's the situation for the ASL repo? There's no update that I can see.

Thanks,

It was released earlier this week. That said, systems running ASL kernels were already immune to compromise from these vulnerabilities.

I'm not seeing it in the atomic repo (as used by our Project Gamera boxes, which rely on clamd!)?

But it is in the ASL repo - thanks.

Yes, its in the ASL repos. The free repos may lag the customer repos.

I understand. Its just that I imagined there might be an exception in this case, given that it is apparently a nasty vulnerability and especially when it would affect anyone with PG boxes.

Please don't think I'm complaining though! Like anyone else who uses these repos, I am extremely grateful for what you provide, out of the kindness of your hearts, without asking for anything in return.
