Bug Description

Binary package hint: clamav

Clamav 0.96.3 was released today and has been packaged in Debian and is intended for Squeeze (it now has something similar to a microversion release exception in Debian). This release fixes two security issues (one of which is already fixed via distro patch) and as is usually the case enables detection of newer virus threats. We should release with the current clamav.

Packaging: Package is from Debian with the standard Ubuntu diff for apparmor support, dropping build-dep on electric-fence (because it's in Universe), and not shipping signatures (users will get them from clamav-data or download via freshclam). There is one minor clamav-freshclam postinst fix that's cherrypicked from Debian's next upload (it's a fix for an issue I found in my testing).

Testing: Performed the most significant steps of the post-release update test process:

1. Passes all clamav tests in https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-bugcontrol/qa-regression-testing/master
2. Rebuilt all libclamav-dev reverse-build-depends to ensure they will still be buildable
3. Tested binary compatibility with klamav (this is the canary in the coal mine package for libclamav binary compatiblity) without issue

Impacts on other packages: None. This is binary compatible with the current package in Maverick.

I'll push this to the unapproved queue and it can be reviewed there.

Since it fixes a minor security bug it's not really wishlist.
