The CVE links the following link:
and that folder contains also

and clamav segfaults on that one. Could you please check?

Yeah. The problem is probably that the reporter did not forward the report to
the upstream project (you) but only to ClamAV. And ClamAV itself isn't very
good at handling such things. I noticed this by chance while checking Debian's
bug report on the other CVE and I assumed it would be best to let you know :)
