CVE-2015-8390 (retired)

Priority
Description
PCRE before 8.38 mishandles the [: and \\ substrings in character classes,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (uninitialized
memory read) 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
