Name        : clamav
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.92.1
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://www.clamav.net
Summary     : End-user tools for the Clam Antivirus scanner
Description :
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of this
software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The
package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command
line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs
are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package,
which you can use with your own software. The virus database is based on
the virus database from OpenAntiVirus, but contains additional signatures
(including signatures for popular polymorphic viruses, too) and is KEPT UP

Update Information:

contains:  - libclamav/mew.c: fix possible heap corruption (bb#806)  -
libclamav/pe.c: fix possible integer overflow (CVE-2008-0318)

* Mon Feb 11 2008 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.92.1-1
- updated to 0.92.1
* Tue Jan  1 2008 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.92-6
- redisabled unrar stuff completely by using clean sources
* Tue Jan  1 2008 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.92-5
- use a better way to disable RPATH-generation (needed for '--with
  unrar' builds)
* Mon Dec 31 2007 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.92-4
- added a README.fedora to the milter package (#240610)
- ship original sources again; unrar is now licensed correctly (no more
  stolen code put under GPL). Nevertheless, this license is not GPL
  compatible, and to allow libclamav to be used by GPL applications,
  unrar is disabled by a ./configure switch.
- use pkg-config in clamav-config to emulate --cflags and --libs
  operations (fixes partly multilib issues)
- registered some more auto-updated files and marked them as %ghost
* Fri Dec 21 2007 Tom "spot" Callaway <tcallawa at redhat.com> - 0.92-3
- updated to 0.92 (SECURITY):
