Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS)

markdown-it is a modern pluggable markdown parser.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) via the /s+$/ in line 23 of lib/rules_inline/newline.js. This expression is used to remove trailing whitespaces from a string, however, it also matches non-trailing whitespaces. In the worst-case scenario, the matching process would take computation time proportional to the square of the length of the non-trailing whitespaces. It is possible that a string containing more than tens of thousands characters, as markdown-it handles Markdown, would be passed over the network, resulting in significant computational time.

How to fix Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS)?

Upgrade markdown-it to version 12.3.2 or higher.
