1. Summary:

Updated pcre packages that resolve several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

3. Problem description:

PCRE is a Perl-compatible regular expression library.

Flaws were discovered 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 have been possible to run
arbitrary code as the user running the application.
(CVE-2006-7225, CVE-2006-7226, CVE-2006-7228, CVE-2006-7230)

Users of PCRE are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
