Description:
Previous versions of the pcre package are vulnerable to a possible
Arbitrary Code Execution attack in which an attacker may use a
maliciously crafted regular expression to trigger a buffer overflow.

The pcre library and utilities are not known to be exposed via any
privileged or remote interfaces within rPath Linux by default, but many
applications linked to the pcre library are routinely exposed to remote
or untrusted data; examples include httpd and some PHP applications.
