Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in PCRE library allows remote attackers to cause a
Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular expression
pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics as Perl 5.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/libpcre < 8.40-r1 >= 8.40-r1

Description
===========

It was found that the compile_bracket_matchingpath function in
pcre_jit_compile.c in PCRE library is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds
read.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition
via a special crafted regular expression.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All PCRE library users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libpcre-8.40-r1"

References
==========
