Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55158
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-173-1 (pcre3)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-173-1 (pcre3)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to pcre3
announced via advisory USN-173-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: libpcre3

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the PCRE, a widely used
library that provides Perl compatible regular expressions. Specially
crafted regular expressions triggered a buffer overflow. On systems
that accept arbitrary regular expressions from untrusted users, this
could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the application using the library.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4.5-1.1ubuntu0.4.10 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 4.5-1.1ubuntu0.5.04
(for Ubuntu 5.04).

A standard system upgrade is NOT SUFFICIENT to effect the necessary
changes! If you can afford to reboot your machine, this is the easiest
way to ensure that all services using this library are restarted
correctly. If not, please manually restart all server processes (exim,
Apache, PHP, etc.). It is advised to also restart your desktop
session.
