CVE-2015-8388 (retired)

Priority
Description
PCRE before 8.38 mishandles the /(?=di(?<=(?1))|(?=(.))))/ pattern and
related patterns with an unmatched closing parenthesis, 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
 tyhicks> Fix for CVE-2015-5073 also fixes this issue
