How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:10 pcre3 to version 2:8.35-7 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream pcre3 package and not the pcre3 package as distributed by Debian:10. See How to fix? for Debian:10 relevant fixed versions and status.

Heap-based buffer overflow in the find_fixedlength function in pcre_compile.c in PCRE before 8.38 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or obtain sensitive information from heap memory and possibly bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted regular expression with an excess closing parenthesis.
