Description Filip Krska 2013-11-13 14:11:49 EST
Description of problem:

There are unsolicited ads loaded from 3rd party servers (implies unsolicited and unexpected tracking by the 3rd party, so privacy concerns may apply) via following markup:

<span style="float: left">
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-3204610807458280";
/* rsyslog doc inline */
google_ad_slot = "5958614527";
google_ad_width = 125;
google_ad_height = 125;
<script type="text/javascript"

in following doc pages:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

All versions (RHEL 5,6,7, latest Fedora affected)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. browse e.g. file:///usr/share/doc/rsyslog-5.8.10/rsyslog_secure_tls.html with web browser

Actual results:

Ads are loaded from http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com

Expected results:

No http request to 3rd party site is performed, no ads displayed when browsing local docs

Thanks for the patch, I've already sent a variation of it patch to upstream. They need to review whether there aren't any other glitches and when they merge, I'll use the final version.
