Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:211
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : pcre
Date : November 8, 2007
Affected: 2007.1
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered by Tavis Ormandy and
Will Drewry in the way that pcre handled certain malformed regular
expressions. If an application linked against pcre, such as Konqueror,
parses a malicious regular expression, it could lead to the execution
of arbitrary code as the user running the application.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
