let me add a related issue here:

steps to reproduce:

  1. download rust repo https://github.com/rust-lang/rust

  2. I tested with revision de857bbcf02d192986efc380b4735d8c9bea85ac

  3. enabled GENERIC_PASSWORD rule

  4. started repository scan

  5. Scan is failed with timeout error. Cause is slowparse-bstring.rs and slowparse-string.rs files

The issue with slowparse-bstring.rs is that there’s a single huge line (hundreds of Kb). It actually breaks syntax highlighting in Vim also when I opened the file:

I opened to track this issue, as it’s not really the same as the intent of this ticket.
