CVE : CVE-2014-6287

issue exists due to a poor regex in the file ParserLib.pas

function findMacroMarker(s:string; ofs:integer=1):integer; begin result:=reMatch(s, '\{[.:]|[.:]\}|\|', 'm!', ofs) end;

it will not handle null byte so a request to


will stop regex from parse macro , and macro will be executed and remote code injection happen.
