Sounds worthwhile to me. I would be really great if you could take care of it.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1319
>             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 4.3 Alpha1
>            Reporter: Sebb
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 4.3 Final
> The IPV6 compressed format regex allows 0 or more hex groups before or after the ::.
> This does not detect too many groups (there should be at most 7 surrounding groups in
> It also allows no groups, i.e "::" which is not permitted AFAIK.
> The first issue could be detected by counting the number of ':' characters in the string.

> There should be no more than 7 colons.
> The empty group could be detected by checking the length of the string - it must be at
least 3 characters.
> That should probably be tested first as it is relatively cheap.
