I agree, they are quite old, I'm mostly curious for posterity's sake. It seems strange that two separate CVEs with very little detail. The fix commit is public, looks to be an out of bounds read, just wanted to know if these two CVEs should be considered as related to the same underlying vulnerability, and if not, what the distinguishing factors were.

    those bugs are apparently security vulnerablities in clamav, and as such
    they are kept private.
    why are you trying to get detailt on them?
    Yes, they might to be revealed, finally they are some 8 years old...
