SuSE9 Security Update : Python (YOU Patch Number 12013)
High Nessus Plugin ID 41173
The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
Python 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-2005-2491, CVE-2006-7228)
