Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : pcre
Version     : 5.0                      
Release     : 4.1.fc4                  
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:

the new package includes a fix for a heap buffer overflow.
* Fri Aug 19 2005 Than Ngo  5.0-4.1.fc4
- backport patch to fix heap overflow, CAN-2005-2491, #166330
