Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201707-20 ========================================== Severity: Medium Date : 2017-07-18 CVE-ID : CVE-2017-7186 CVE-2017-7244 CVE-2017-7245 CVE-2017-7246 Package : pcre Type : multiple issues Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-222 Summary ======= The package pcre before version 8.41-1 is vulnerable to multiple issues including denial of service and arbitrary code execution. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 8.41-1. # pacman -Syu "pcre>=8.41-1" The problems have been fixed upstream in version 8.41. Workaround ========== None. Description =========== - CVE-2017-7186 (denial of service) libpcre1 in PCRE 8.40 and libpcre2 in PCRE2 10.23 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation violation for read access, and application crash) by triggering an invalid Unicode property lookup. - CVE-2017-7244 (denial of service) A stack-based read buffer overflow has been found in libpcre <= 8.40, in the pcretest utility. It can lead to denial of service via a crafted expression passed to the pcretest command. - CVE-2017-7245 (arbitrary code execution) A stack-based write buffer overflow has been found in libpcre <= 8.40, in the pcretest utility. It can lead to arbitrary code execution via a crafted expression passed to the pcretest command. - CVE-2017-7246 (arbitrary code execution) A stack-based write buffer overflow has been found in libpcre <= 8.40, in the pcretest utility. It can lead to arbitrary code execution via a crafted expression passed to the pcretest command. Impact ====== An attacker can execute arbitrary code on the affected host by tricking a user into passing a crafted expression to the pcretest command. A remote attacker can cause a denial of service against an application using libpcre via a crafted expression.
