Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58969
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0967
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0967.

PCRE is a Perl-compatible regular expression library.

Multiple flaws were found in the way pcre handles certain malformed regular
expressions. If an application linked against pcre, such as Konqueror,
parses a malicious regular expression, it may be possible to run arbitrary
code as the user running the application. (CVE-2007-1659, CVE-2007-1660)

Users of pcre are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy and Will Drewry for properly
disclosing these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
