Libonig Security Update for Debian 8 LTS


Package : libonig
Version : 5.9.5-3.2+deb8u2
CVE ID : CVE-2019-13224
Debian Bug : 931878

A use-after-free in onig_new_deluxe() in regext.c allows attackers to
potentially cause information disclosure, denial of service, or
possibly code execution by providing a crafted regular expression. The
attacker
provides a pair of a regex pattern and a string, with a multi-byte
encoding that gets handled by onig_new_deluxe().

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
5.9.5-3.2+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libonig packages.
