PCRE Regular CVE-2015-8385 Pattern Handling Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

PCRE is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary-checks on user supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service condition. Due to the nature of this issue, code-execution may be possible but this has not been confirmed.

Versions prior to PCRE 8.38 are vulnerable.
