Gentoo Linux Security Advisory reports:

Clam AntiVirus is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in "libclamav/upx.c" when processing malformed UPX-packed executables. It can also be sent into an infinite loop in "libclamav/fsg.c" when processing specially-crafted FSG-packed executables.

By sending a specially-crafted file an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Clam AntiVirus, or cause a Denial of Service.
