Well not quite nothing, since you can download the source, apply the
patch, and rebuild ClamAV.

At the moment I'm scanning mail with two copies of clamd, one patched
and one plain vanilla.  Despite some concerns about the reliability in
#10979, which is why I'm running an unpatched copy as well, the patched
version seems to be holding up - at least at fairly low mail volumes.

This is with my own Perl milter, see my recent post on the dev list
describing it.  If anyone wants to try it they're more than welcome.
