Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in Perl-Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE) library before 7.3 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a singleton Unicode sequence in a character class in a regex pattern, which is incorrectly optimized.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-flash-player
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

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.
