CVE-2007-1662

Status Candidate

Debian Linux Security Advisory 1570-1
Posted May 6, 2008
Authored by Debian | Site debian.org

Debian Security Advisory 1570-1 - Andrews Salomon reported that kazehakase, a GTK+-base web browser that allows pluggable rendering engines, contained an embedded copy of the PCRE library in its source tree which was compiled in and used in preference to the system-wide version of this library. The PCRE library has been updated to fix the security issues reported against it in previous Debian Security Advisories. This update ensures that kazehakase uses that supported library, and not its own embedded and insecure version.

Ubuntu Security Notice 547-1 - Tavis Ormandy and Will Drewry discovered multiple flaws in the regular expression handling of PCRE. By tricking a user or service into running specially crafted expressions via applications linked against libpcre3, a remote attacker could crash the application, monopolize CPU resources, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the application's privileges.

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory 200711-30
Posted Nov 26, 2007

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200711-30 - Tavis Ormandy (Google Security) discovered multiple vulnerabilities in PCRE. He reported an error when processing \Q\E sequences with unmatched \E codes that can lead to the compiled bytecode being corrupted. PCRE does not properly calculate sizes for unspecified multiple forms of character class, which triggers a buffer overflow. Further improper calculations of memory boundaries were reported when matching certain input bytes against regex patterns in non UTF-8 mode and when searching for unmatched brackets or parentheses. Multiple integer overflows when processing escape sequences may lead to invalid memory read operations or potentially cause heap-based buffer overflows. PCRE does not properly handle \P and \P{x} sequences which can lead to heap-based buffer overflows or trigger the execution of infinite loops, PCRE is also prone to an error when optimizing character classes containing a singleton UTF-8 sequence which might lead to a heap-based buffer overflow. Versions less than 7.3-r1 are affected.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2007.211
Posted Nov 8, 2007
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - 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.
