Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in PCRE2, the worst of which
may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

PCRE2 is a project based on PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions)
which has a new and revised API.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PCRE2. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or have
other unspecified impacts.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All PCRE2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
