Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gnumeric
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:153
Date: August 26th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Integer overflow in pcre_compile.c in Perl Compatible Regular
Expressions (PCRE) before 6.2, as used in multiple products, allows
attackers to execute arbitrary code via quantifier values in regular
expressions, which leads to a heap-based buffer overflow.

The gnumeric packages use a private copy of pcre code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
