Subject Re: Source script reveal bug
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2001 04:33:08 GMT
I know that the release notes for tomcat 4 beta 5 state that appending the
string "%00" to the end of the JSP url will reveal the source code, but it was
referring to tc4 betas prior to beta 5.  Is this the issue you're talking
