Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Dear WordPress Team,

I've detected a bug in the function send_through_proxy in the class WP_HTTP_Proxy. The coded regex for wildcarded domains only works for subdomains containing characters (a-zA-Z0-9) and . (dot) but not for subdomains containing characters (a-zA-Z0-9) and - (dash).

File: wp-includes/class-http.php around line 1411


define(WP_PROXY_BYPASS_HOSTS, '*.example.com');

foo.bar.example.com will not use proxy. foo-bar.example.com will use proxy.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Change the line 1411 from

     $wildcard_regex[] = str_replace('\*', '[\w.]+?', preg_quote($host, '/'));


     $wildcard_regex[] = str_replace('\*', '[\w.-]+?', preg_quote($host, '/'));

Yours, Erich Lerch
