PCRE is a Perl-compatible regular expression library.

Security Fix(es):

  • Multiple flaws were found in the way PCRE handled malformed regular expressions. An attacker able to make an application using PCRE process a specially crafted regular expression could use these flaws to cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8385, CVE-2016-3191, CVE-2015-2328, CVE-2015-3217, CVE-2015-5073, CVE-2015-8388, CVE-2015-8391, CVE-2015-8386)
