Description

Perl-Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE) library before 7.3 does not properly compute the length of (1) a \p sequence, (2) a \P sequence, or (3) a \P{x} sequence, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop or crash) or execute arbitrary code.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-pcre
  • suse-upgrade-pcre-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-pcre-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-pcre-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
