            What is "unsafe" about this regex?

            Don't put too much trust into these automated checks. They might detect common mistake patterns, but not every warning necessarily means that a regex can run into catastrophic backtracking, and I'd go out on a limb and say that regex are too complex to ever get a definitive answer on that from an automated tool.

            The two expressions you show are equivalent, the second one just happens to not trip the wire. I don't think that either is unsafe.
