MDKSA-2005:153: gnumeric Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gnumeric package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:153 (gnumeric).

Integer overflow in pcre_compile.c in Perl Compatible Regular Expressions
(PCRE) before 6.2, as used in multiple products, allows attackers to execute
arbitrary code via quantifier values in regular expressions, which leads to a
heap-based buffer overflow.

The gnumeric packages use a private copy of pcre code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
