Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered a heap-based buffer overflow when compiling certain regular expression patterns. This could be used by a malicious attacker by sending a specially crafted regular expression to an application using the PCRE library, resulting in the possible execution of arbitrary code or a denial of service (CVE-2008-2371). The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
