Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in ICU 3.2 Library Regular Expression Processing May Cause a Denial of Service (DoS)

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:5431

Heap-based buffer overflow in the doInterval function in regexcmp.cpp in libicu in International Components for Unicode (ICU) 3.8.1 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) and possibly have unspecified other impact via a regular expression that writes a large amount of data to the backtracking stack. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
