Too funny...

"USN-3093-1: ClamAV vulnerabilities - 28th September 2016

It was discovered that ClamAV incorrectly handled certain malformed
files. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause ClamAV to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
In the default installation, attackers would be isolated by the ClamAV
AppArmor profile.

CVE-2016-1371 CVE-2016-1372 CVE-2016-1405"

...IIUC as long as apparmor is used, it's still safe, OTOH the anti
virus software, good for absolutely nothing for the Linux install, just
good to protect e.g. Windows users, when using e.g. a Linux mail
server, only adds the risk of additional vulnerabilities ;).
