Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2016-02-23 17:28:26 EST
glib upstream git master uses pcre 8.31.  This flaw was only introduced in pcre 8.35, so no glib version should be affected.

https://git.gnome.org/browse/glib/tree/glib/pcre/pcre.h

This also only affects apps that use PCRE JIT, which is not the case for glib.
