CVE-2015-8382 (retired)

Priority
Description
The match function in pcre_exec.c in PCRE before 8.37 mishandles the
/(?:((abcd))|(((?:(?:(?:(?:abc|(?:abcdef))))b)abcdefghi)abc)|((*ACCEPT)))/
pattern and related patterns involving (*ACCEPT), which allows remote
attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a
denial of service (partially initialized memory and application crash) via
a crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a JavaScript RegExp object
encountered by Konqueror, aka ZDI-CAN-2547.
Notes
tyhicksIssue affects PCRE3 only
Marking 'low' since it requires PCRE to operate on untrusted regular
expressions which is not very likely
