#17100 closed Bug (fixed)

Possible bad regex for email validator

Reported by: reames@… Owned by: nobody

Around line 150 of /django/core/ is a line in which I think there's a missing backslash:

r'|^"([\001-\010\013\014\016-\037!#-\[\]-\177]|\\[\001-011\013\014\016-\177])*"' # quoted-string
                                missing backslash? ----^

If you look at the debug output of that part of the regex, I think the backslash is what is meant.

>>> re.compile(r'[\001-\011]', re.DEBUG)
  range (1, 9)
<_sre.SRE_Pattern object at 0x137e9b0>
>>> re.compile(r'[\001-011]', re.DEBUG)
  range (1, 48)
  literal 49
  literal 49
<_sre.SRE_Pattern object at 0x137ea48>

Given this, the following email should fail: "\12"

A test case:
assert(email_re.match('"\\\12"') == None)
