High Nessus Plugin ID 31066

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.8

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.

Solution

Update the affected glib2 package.
