The PCRE library is incorporated into a number of prominent programs, such as Adobe Flash, Apache, Nginx, PHP. PCRE library is prone to a vulnerability which leads to Heap Overflow. During the compilation of a malformed regular expression, more data is written on the malloced block than the expected size output by compile_regex. Exploits with advanced Heap Fengshui techniques may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application. Reference: https://bugs.exim.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1667 Could you assign a CVE-ID for this? Thank you && Regards. Wen Guanxing from Venustech ADLAB
