Hi Garrett,

Sorry about the delay, I've just marked each of the 3 requested bugzilla reports as publicly viewable so you find your answers.

Our general policy is to make vulnerability-type tickets public after a version is released.  That said, we usually keep PoC's and in-depth details about vulnerabilities private so as to not make it too easy for people with malicious intentions.

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.

to view these bugs in Bugzilla.  The issues appear to have been fixed in
the same commit (
but this doesn't provide detail on which bug applies to which fix, or the
nature of the bugs themselves.  Any help on differentiating these
vulnerabilities would be appreciated.

   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...
