Description Corey Welton 2014-08-06 18:02:09 UTC
Description of problem:
In general, we have gravatar turned off, etc., but it appears that we still ping gravatar.com for a stock user icon.  This could be problematic for customers in secure environments.  It looks like there is an "onerror" param to possibly populate if required resource cannot be reached, but I don't think customers in isolated environments would like attempts to ping things outside their environment.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to server
2. View source

Actual results:

  <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-id="aid_not_defined" data-toggle="dropdown" id="account_menu"><img alt="Change your avatar at gravatar.com" class="avatar small" onerror="this.src=&#x27;/assets/user-c684a0655d613a29a3047ff214c3303a.jpg&#x27;" src="https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/9197d16c849917a9972736fbeb9d2dbd?d=mm&amp;s=30" />Admin User <span class="caret"></span></a>

Expected results:

Should not ping, or attempt to ping, third party content, per customers on secure/isolated environments.
