SuSE9 Security Update : Apache 2 (YOU Patch Number 12000)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 41170
The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
Apache2 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-2006-7224, CVE-2007-1660)
