Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-12-16 18:11:27 EST
Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37.
