DescriptionGlib2 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.
