CWE CWE-19
CAPEC
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • XML Nested Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By nesting XML data and causing this data to be continuously self-referential, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In most cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it may be possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.230.1].
  • XML Oversized Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By supplying oversized payloads in input vectors that will be processed by the XML parser, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization, and potentially cause execution of arbitrary code. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In many cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it is possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.231.1].
  • XML Client-Side Attack
    Client applications such as web browsers that process HTML data often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.484.1]

This version fixes a number of vulnerabilities that affect pcre and applications using the libary when accepting untrusted input as regular expressions or as part thereof. Remote attackers could have caused the application to crash, disclose information or potentially execute arbitrary code. These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2014-8964: Heap-based buffer overflow in PCRE allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or have other unspecified impact via a crafted regular expression, related to an assertion that allows zero repeats (bsc#906574). - CVE-2015-2325: Heap buffer overflow in compile_branch() (bsc#924960). - CVE-2015-3210: Heap buffer overflow in pcre_compile2() / compile_regex() (bsc#933288) - CVE-2015-3217: PCRE Library Call Stack Overflow Vulnerability in match() (bsc#933878). - CVE-2015-5073: Library Heap Overflow Vulnerability in find_fixedlength() (bsc#936227). - bsc#942865: heap overflow in compile_regex() - CVE-2015-8380: The pcre_exec function in pcre_exec.c mishandled a // pattern with a \01 string, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a JavaScript RegExp object encountered by Konqueror (bsc#957566). - CVE-2015-2327: PCRE mishandled certain patterns with internal recursive back references, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a JavaScript RegExp object encountered by Konqueror (bsc#957567). - bsc#957598: Various security issues - CVE-2015-8381: Heap Overflow in compile_regex() (bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8382: Regular Expression Uninitialized Pointer Information Disclosure Vulnerability (ZDI-CAN-2547)(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8383: Buffer overflow caused by repeated conditional group(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8384: Buffer overflow caused by recursive back reference by name within certain group(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8385: Buffer overflow caused by forward reference by name to certain group(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8386: Buffer overflow caused by lookbehind assertion(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8387: Integer overflow in subroutine calls(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8388: Buffer overflow caused by certain patterns with an unmatched closing parenthesis(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8389: Infinite recursion in JIT compiler when processing certain patterns(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8390: Reading from uninitialized memory when processing certain patterns(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8391: Some pathological patterns causes pcre_compile() to run for a very long time(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8392: Buffer overflow caused by certain patterns with duplicated named groups(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8393: Information leak when running pcgrep -q on crafted binary(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8394: Integer overflow caused by missing check for certain conditions(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-8395: Buffer overflow caused by certain references(bsc#957598). - CVE-2015-2328: PCRE mishandled the /((?(R)a|(?1)))+/ pattern and related patterns with certain recursion, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted regular expression (bsc#957600). - CVE-2016-1283: The pcre_compile2 function in pcre_compile.c in PCRE mishandled certain patterns with named subgroups, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted regular expression (bsc#960837). - CVE-2016-3191: The compile_branch function in pcre_compile.c in pcre2_compile.c mishandled patterns containing an (*ACCEPT) substring in conjunction with nested parentheses, which allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer overflow) via a crafted regular expression (bsc#971741). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description An update for pcre is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. 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.
