Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
All versions of package express-validators are vulnerable to Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) when validating specifically-crafted invalid urls.
CWE-400 - Uncontrolled resource consumption
An uncontrolled resource allocation attack (also known as resource exhaustion attack) triggers unauthorized overconsumption of the limited resources in an application, such as memory, file system storage, database connection pool entries, and CPU. This may lead to denial of service for valid users and degradation of the application's functionality as well as that of the host operating system.
