Debian Security Advisory DSA-1602-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
July 05, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
