Inefficient Regular Expression Complexity
All versions of the package configobj are vulnerable to Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) via the "validate" function, using "(.+?)\((.*)\)". **Note:** This is only exploitable in the case of a developer, putting the offending value in a server side configuration file.
CWE-1333 - Inefficient Regular Expression Complexity
The product uses a regular expression with an inefficient, possibly exponential worst-case computational complexity that consumes excessive CPU cycles.
