Debs for all packages built and installed on i386. Tested clamav-base, clamav-daemon, and freshclam with Klamav with no issues.

Correction and update.... Klamav uses clamav, not clamav daemon. libclamav2 also gets used. The Klamav test succesfully found the test files included with the clamav package.

Have now built the package on a second Feisty i386 computer and run clamv (libclamav2, clamav-base, freshclam, and clamav-daemon) with clamsmtp successfully.

I think this would be a good idea for Feisty. What does the security team (Kees?) think?

Daniel T Chen (crimsun) wrote :

Sorry, meant "Feisty" above to be Feisty backports.

Scott Kitterman (kitterman) wrote :

If you want to hold this for backports, then I think someone (other than me because I don't know enough) needs to look at patching our 0.90.1 packages for the two CVEs fixeD

Scott Kitterman (kitterman) wrote :

Stupid Treo truncates the response....

... for the two CVEs fixed in 0.90.2. At this point I think it's probably lower risk to take their entire (tested) 0.90.2 release than to try an cherry pick out the fixes for the two CVEs. Either way I'm glad I'm not the one that has to decide.

+1 from me, based on it being a bug fix release, and that upstream will disable support for 0.90.1 (http://lurker.clamav.net/message/20070413.012951.1d50edff.en.html)

Daniel T Chen (crimsun) wrote :

Ok, in light of the information above regarding support for 0.90.1 being disabled on 16 Apr '07, let's move immediately on this.
