Home CVE Database CVE-2015-8381



The compile_regex function in pcre_compile.c in PCRE before 8.38 and pcre2_compile.c in PCRE2 before 10.2x mishandles the /(?J:(?|(:(?|(?\'R\')(\\k\'R\')|((?\'R\')))H\'Rk\'Rf)|s(?\'R\'))))/ and /(?J:(?|(:(?|(?\'R\')(\\z(?|(?\'R\')(\\k\'R\')|((?\'R\')))k\'R\')|((?\'R\')))H\'Ak\'Rf)|s(?\'R\')))/ patterns, and related patterns with certain group references, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted regular expression, as demonstrated by a JavaScript RegExp object encountered by Konqueror.
