Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:153: gnumeric

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gnumeric package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:153 (gnumeric).



Integer overflow in pcre_compile.c in Perl Compatible Regular Expressions
(PCRE) before 6.2, as used in multiple products, permits attackers to execute
arbitrary code via quantifier values in regular expressions, which leads to a
heap-based buffer overflow.

The gnumeric packages use a private copy of pcre code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
