Fedora 8 : glib2-2.14.6-1.fc8 (2008-1533)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

PCRE 7.6 fixed following bug: A character class containing a very
large number of characters with codepoints greater than 255 (in UTF-8
mode, of course) caused a buffer overflow. The GLib release 2.14.6
updates the included copy of PCRE to version 7.6.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
