Fedora Update Notification
2015-12-16 14:34:46.182242

Name        : pcre
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 8.38
Release     : 4.fc23
URL         : http://www.pcre.org/
Summary     : Perl-compatible regular expression library
Description :
Perl-compatible regular expression library.
PCRE has its own native API, but a set of "wrapper" functions that are based on
the POSIX API are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this
just provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE: the regular expressions
themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file
for the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h.

Update Information:

This release fixes compiling expressions with global extended modifier that is
disabled by local no-extended option at the start of the expression just after a
whitespace, a possible crash in pcre_copy_named_substring() if a named substring
has number greater than the space in the ovector, a buffer overflow when
compiling an expression with named groups with a group that resets capture
numbers, a crash in pcre_get_substring_list() if the use of \K caused the start
of the match to be earlier than the end.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update pcre' at the command line.
