CVE-2015-8392 (retired)

Priority
Description
PCRE before 8.38 mishandles certain instances of the (?| substring, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (unintended recursion
and buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a
crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a JavaScript RegExp object
encountered by Konqueror, a related issue to CVE-2015-8384 and
CVE-2015-8395.
Notes
tyhicksIssue affects PCRE3 only
Marking 'low' since it requires PCRE to operate on untrusted regular
expressions which is not very likely
