CVE-2015-8385 (retired)

Priority
Description
PCRE before 8.38 mishandles the /(?|(\k'Pm')|(?'Pm'))/ pattern and related
patterns with certain forward references, which allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via a crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a
JavaScript RegExp object encountered by Konqueror.
Notes
 tyhicks> Issue affects PCRE3 only
 tyhicks> Marking 'low' since it requires PCRE to operate on untrusted regular
  expressions which is not very likely
