A fuzz on libpcre1 through the pcretest utility revealed an invalid memory read. Upstream says that this bug is fixed by one of the previous commit. However Iā€™m providing as usual the stacktrace and the reproducer, so if you are not running the latest upstream release, like happen on debian/rhel based distros, you may want to check better the status of this bug.
