Package : pcre3 Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : local (remote) Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-2371

Tavis Ormandy discovered that PCRE, the Perl-Compatible Regular Expression library, may encounter a heap overflow condition when compiling certain regular expressions involving in-pattern options and branches, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 6.7+7.4-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your pcre3 packages.

Upgrade instructions - -------------------- wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.
