clamav vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Several security issues were fixed in ClamAV.

Software Description:

It was discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled parsing certain OLE2
files. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause ClamAV to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2024-20290)

Amit Schendel discovered that the ClamAV ClamD service incorrectly handled
the VirusEvent feature. An attacker able to connect to ClamD could possibly
use this issue to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-20328)

Update instructions:
