Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the pcre package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-803 (pcre).

Perl-compatible regular expression library. PCRE has its own native
API, but a set of 'wrapper' functions that are based on the POSIX API
are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this just
provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE
the regular expressions
themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file for
the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h.

Update Information:

the new package includes a fix for a heap buffer overflow.
