openSUSE 10 Security Update : glib2 (glib2-4768)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

Glib2 contains a copy of the pcre library. Specially crafted regular
expressions could lead to a buffer overflow in the pcre library.
Applications using pcre to process regular expressions from untrusted
sources could therefore potentially be exploited by attackers to
execute arbitrary code (CVE-2007-1659, CVE-2007-1660). This update
makes glib2 use the system's pcre library which was already updated to
fix the above mentioned problems.

Solution :

Update the affected glib2 packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
