Description Josh Bressers 2010-10-12 14:28:09 UTC
Google security researcher Robert Swiecki reported that functions used by
the Gopher parser to convert text to HTML tags could be exploited to turn
text into executable JavaScript. If an attacker could create a file or
directory on a Gopher server with the encoded script as part of its name
the script would then run in a victim's browser within the context of the
site.
