This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable ClamAV installations. Authentication is not required to

checking when copying user-supplied data to heap allocated memory, an
exploitable memory corruption condition is created. The unpacking
algorithm for other versions of FSG is not affected.
