It seems pretty strange that the Swedish Language Council wanted "ogooglebar" to mean "something that can't be found in *any* search engine"

As far as I'm concerned, if I say something is "un-google-able" then I mean "I can't find it in Google"

For example, the search term ||= is ungoogleable, but is it ogooglebar?

I'm assuming since most of the clues begin and end with .* that they're all intended to be anchored to the start and end of the word. So that particular clue matches an 8 character string consisting only of (zero or more) Rs followed by (zero or more) Ds followed by (zero or more) Ms. I don't think you'll find anything in the word list completely matching that

Seems like you are mistaken. The very next sentence after the block you quoted says:

There are other exploitable scenarios, but it really depends on what your app is doing. Since it is impossible to prove that something isn’t insecure, you should take the vulnerability seriously and upgrade anyway even if you think you aren’t affected.

Always look over your shoulder because everyone is watching and plotting against you.
