An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has three
fixes is now available.

Description:

clamav was updated to version 0.98.5 to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed:
- Segmentation fault when processing certain files (CVE-2013-6497).
- Heap-based buffer overflow when scanning crypted PE files
(CVE-2014-9050).

The following non-security issues were fixed:
- Support for the XDP file format and extracting, decoding, and scanning
PDF files within XDP files.
- Addition of shared library support for LLVM versions 3.1 - 3.5 for the
purpose of just-in-time(JIT) compilation of ClamAV bytecode signatures.
- Enhancements to the clambc command line utility to assist ClamAV
bytecode signature authors by providing introspection into compiled
bytecode programs.
- Resolution of many of the warning messages from ClamAV compilation.
- Improved detection of malicious PE files.
- ClamAV 0.98.5 now works with OpenSSL in FIPS compliant mode (bnc#904207).
- Fix server socket setup code in clamd (bnc#903489).
- Change updateclamconf to prefer the state of the old config file even
for commented-out options (bnc#903719).
