Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: PCRE2: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201710-09)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-10-08
Bug(s): #614050, #617942, #617944
ID: 201710-09


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in PCRE2, the worst of
which may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.


PCRE2 is a project based on PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions)
which has a new and revised API.

Affected Packages

Package: dev-libs/libpcre2
Vulnerable: < 10.30
Unaffected: >= 10.30
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PCRE2. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or have
other unspecified impacts.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All PCRE2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libpcre2-10.30"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
