Fedora 8 : glib2-2.14.6-1.fc8 (2008-1533)
High Nessus Plugin ID 31066
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionPCRE 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected glib2 package.
