Subject [jira] [Updated] (VALIDATOR-315) Email validator does not properly validate symbolic domain names
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2014 14:24:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-315?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Sebb updated VALIDATOR-315:
---------------------------

    Priority: Major  (was: Critical)

> Email validator does not properly validate symbolic domain names
> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: VALIDATOR-315
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-315
>             Project: Commons Validator
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.0 Release
>            Reporter: Christopher Schultz
>
> This returns true:
> EmailValidator.getInstance().isValid("me@at&t.net")
> ...when IMO it should not. If the portion of the address after the @ is symbolic, then
it should be validated like a host name which may only contain [A-Za-z0-9-\.] and has a few
other requirements as well (no leading or trailing hyphen or empty 'label', max 63 characters
per label, max 255 characters total length).
> I'm less interested in the limits, etc. but an '&' is not valid in a hostname and
it would be nice to fail under those conditions. Use of IDN should pretty much allow any letter
or number (\p{Alnum}).
