CVE-2015-8386 (retired)

Priority
Description
PCRE before 8.38 mishandles the interaction of lookbehind assertions and
mutually recursive subpatterns, 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
tyhicksIssue affects PCRE3 only
Marking 'low' since it requires PCRE to operate on untrusted regular
expressions which is not very likely
