Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2008-02-15 19:46:14 UTC
I'm giving this issue an impact of low.  List administrators already have a
access to a set of rather sensitive data, if they cannot be trusted there are
other more serious problems that arise.

Comment 6 Josh Bressers 2008-02-18 19:06:49 UTC
It should also be noted that this problem likely cannot be fixed.  The current
patch focuses on blacklisting various dangerous things, but there are always new
ways to circumvent these protections.  The only true solution is to whitelist tags.
