Subject: CVE Request: clamav-milter on Ubuntu

Due to a typo, the clamav-milter initscript would change the owner of
the current directory to clamav (or whatever User is set to in
clamd.conf). This typically affects the '/' directory, but could affect
any directory on the system. This is all documented in the Ubuntu bug[1].

This was introduced in this commit:;a=commitdiff;h=c4e1bf5d98637c0219852eaac768170bf8aef2fc;hp=5a2b5013440c4b81d0eb3233072c88564a15fc5d

0.95.1+dfsg-1ubuntu1 and 0.95.1+dfsg-1ubuntu1.1 on Ubuntu 9.04 are
affected, but earlier versions are not. It looks like Debian never
released with this code, and version 0.95.1+dfsg-2 (in Debian/unstable)
is not affected. Derivatives of Ubuntu 9.04 are presumably affected.

Can we get a CVE for this?
