Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-1534) Unescaped text messages in message detail
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2008 14:43:43 GMT
Unescaped text messages in message detail

                 Key: AMQ-1534
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 5.0.0
         Environment: Browser
            Reporter: Elliotte Rusty Harold
            Priority: Critical

The new HTTP based queue view is very useful. However it has one really annoying bug that

of the message. The text appears to be blank, especially if the message only contains tags
and white space as was the case for me. Even if it isn't completely blank, the tags will be

The problem is that the text of the message is displayed raw and added to the HTML. This could
even be a vector for XSS attacks since no escaping is performed.

Before displaying the text it should be escaped. That is, & should be converted to &amp;
and < to &lt;. That should fix the critical problems.
