Date : 2015-05-08
CVE-ID : CVE-2014-8964
Package : mariadb-clients
Type : denial of service
Remote : Yes
Link : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE
The package mariadb-clients before version 10.0.18-1 is vulnerable to
denial of service.
Upgrade to 10.0.18-1.
# pacman -Syu "mariadb-clients>=10.0.18-1"
The problems have been fixed upstream in version 10.0.18.
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way PCRE handled certain
malformed regular expressions. This issue could cause a crash while
parsing malicious regular expressions related to an assertion that
allows zero repeats.
A remote attacker is able to cause an application crash leading to
denial of service via malicious regular expressions.
