Description Andrej Nemec 2017-03-21 15:59:22 UTC
A vulnerability was found in pcre caused by trying to find a Unicode property for a code value greater than 0x10ffff, the Unicode maximum, when running in non-UTF mode (where character values can be up to 0xffffffff).

The same issue exists in JIT code and it was fixed separately with SVN r720 commit:

Comment 5 Doran Moppert 2017-06-07 01:51:08 UTC
This issue is specific to PCRE32 (utf-32) mode, which is not available in the pcre-7.8 (shipped in 6.x) and not enabled in the various bundling components (glib, virtuoso, php, mariadb).
