 FIXED: Email Link Bug
 Posted on: 09/29/06 at 10:14:41

You cannot use the UBBC or HTML for email with certain email addresses. The specific problem I found is with email addresses beginning with "D". I am certain there are others.

This occurs in articles and forums. (Maybe other areas)

Example: The email address is D @ whatever:
Using UBBC: Email: Invalid input!
Using HTML: <a href="mailto:D@whatever">D@whatever</a>

This bug is fixed. It has to do with these 4 letters:

D, P, o and x.

the "solution" so far wink is to temporaly change the case...

o => O O@email.com
D => d d@email.com

If we go back it will give us:
O => o o@email.com
d => D D@email.com

Are there more examples out there?

Also happens if someone puts their email address in their profile.

subs: dosmilies
topics: undosmilies

Not sure if there are other areas.

Yeah, the easy fix is to remove all of the non-commented smilies...

well not all, but the ones most likely to offend...

It will be simplier to fix the ubb email call rather than messing up with the smilies unless we want to produce trillions of missing images in trillions of sites.

as in shut off the smilies for emails?

go ahead...  much easier and quicker fix with less repurcussions...

I just hate pasting in some thing and when I go to read the quoted text there are smilies embedded in there...

 FIXED: Email Link Bug
 Posted on: 09/29/06 at 18:50:04

Fixed! (thus all the 4 bugs are fixed for: x, D, o and P).

Since the issue is also published in org, I am afraid I wont be able to make it public before our next release. This is because org deleted earlier contributions made by me and the major contributors to webapp script (who happened to be here) plus others who wrote plain programs and modules... but for some reason thier names and copyrights were deleted (or rather been replaced..).

I am afraid the same policy also has to be practiced for the recent found/patched 8 security holes and hope you could accept my apology for that.

On :)

Test (just before moving this to the fixed bugs forum):

o@test.co
x@test.co
D@test.co
P@test.co

On, could you please enlighten us as to where these name and copyright changes have been done? If it is something I have access to, I would be happy to correct it.

Hi Jos!

Thanks for being positive in showing interest in resolving this issue, we are working systematicly on cleaning the code and that would imply among other tasks also proofreading of the code and granted credits while comparing to earlier versions released. The list of the changes resulted by this proofreading will be made public upon next release.

I see that our competitor (singular... because it is *one* person only.) eventually "managed" to find something that may look like a fix to this issue (2 weeks after we are done with the fix), just a short notice: this fix is not complete (just like search.pl fixes the released). My advice to all of you is to wait for our new release. The fix we have for this issue is safer, complete and written according to Perl standards.

On :)
