VPR Score: 5.8

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A buffer overflow in PCRE 7.x before 7.6 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a regular expression that contains a character class with a large number of characters with Unicode code points greater than 255.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
