libonig - security update

Description

A use-after-free in onig\_new\_deluxe() in regext.c allows attackers to potentially cause information disclosure, denial of service, or possibly code execution by providing a crafted regular expression. The attacker provides a pair of a regex pattern and a string, with a multi-byte encoding that gets handled by onig\_new\_deluxe(). For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 5.9.5-3.2+deb8u2. We recommend that you upgrade your libonig packages. Further information about Debian LTS security advisories, how to apply these updates to your system and frequently asked questions can be found at: <https://wiki.debian.org/LTS>
